ucs away message

  • You can set an away message that automatically replies to people who send you messages when you are out of the office for an extended period of time.
  • The auto-reply message is sent to each recipient only once, regardless of how many messages that person sends you during the designated vacation period.
  • You can set up the out-of-office reply in advance and set a date when the message should begin to be sent and when the message should stop.

To set an away message:

  1. Select the Preferences tab and choose Out of Office.
  2. Select Send auto-reply message.
  3. Create an Auto-Reply Message in the available window.
  4. Select the time period that the auto-replies will be sent.
  5. Clicksave.
