Does anyone know were I can download the out of office asisstant for outlook 98. I can't find it on microsofts website.

If you have Outlook 98, and NOT Outlook Express, the Out of Office assistant is part of the program, and you will find it in Tools drop down menu. I don't think any parts of this program are downloadable - they are all on the Office 98 CD.

I might be wrong, (on Office XP) right click clippit and choose options to change the animation to another chioce (you might have to load them from the Office Disc).

out of office assistant is an exchange add on... if you click tools / options and then click the last tab you should see an add in manager. Exchange tasks can be added by ticking a check box. i cant tell you exactly as I do not have Outlook to hand. it wont help you much though unless you have an exchange server... the out of office assistant runs on the exchange not your mail client. . . .

Thanks for the advise. The add-in I needed was actualy named Emsuix.ecf which adds "Exchange Extension Commands" to my add-in Manager. I see microsoft have made their software as user friendly as possible.

What's the procedure for Office 2000?

If you go to Tools/Options/
Select "Other" Tab
Select "Advanced Options"
Select "Add-in Manager"
If "Exchange Extension Commands" is not in the list of add-ins. Select "Install" you will see a list of files select Emsuix.ecf click "open. This should put the Exchange Extension Commands into your add-in manager and you should now have the out of office in tools

There is no Emsuix.ecf in the add-ins!

Sorry. Microsoft (to make thing as clear as mud) changed the add-in name to outex2.ecf
