I Am Away Message in OE

How can I leave an automatic e mail reply to all incoming messages along the lines of 'I am away til December' in Outlook Express 6. I've seen done on some versions of Outlook at work.

I'm not sure that it can be done in OE.

In any case, whilst "Out of Office" notifications are fine at work, this is not the case for home users. Basically you are telling all and sundry who e-mail you that your house is empty and awaiting burglars.

Fair point VoG but do all my contacts no where I live; I could be at home but just not available.

I can't find it Options menu of OE.

Probably only in Outlook.

Is Outlook any good?

It can be done click here

but my advice is don't!

Crossed posting there Clonetrooper.

Yes Outlook is good, very good, but if you just want an e-mail client OE is fine. Outlook gives you calendar, appointments, task list and so on.

Whilst you're correct that all your contacts don't know where you live if you get any spam you'll be confirming you're email address ;-)
