SETTING UP OUT OF OFFICE REPLY IN ENTOURAGE 2008

How to set up Out of Office reply
Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac

If you have Entourage 2004 then unfortunately you cannot do it. If you have an Exchange account then you can use webmail to set this up. For POP and IMAP account there is a work around for setting OOO/OOOR, if you can download a third party application, you would be able to set out of office reply with the help of that, but again make sure that you should have Mac OS 10.4 or later version.
If you have upgraded it to Entourage 2008 then you can easily configure this in your Rules. Here are the steps to set this up:

How to turn ON out of office reply:
1. Launch your Entourage 2008.
2. Go to the Tools menu and click Out of Office. Select Send 'Out of Office messages'.
3. Under the 'Reply to message' with box, define the text that you want to be sent as reply.

How to turn OFF out of office reply:
1. Launch your Entourage 2008.
2. Go to the Tools menu and click Out of Office.
3. Select 'Do not Send Out of Office messages'.

Just wanted to tell you that your deligates cannot set ON or OFF out of office reply for you.

Hi, I've just found your blog after Googling. I am away for 3 weeks and wanted an out of office reply. I have Entourage 2008 but I don't even have an "Out of Office" under Tools. ?? Any suggestions why it wouldn't be there? THanks.
