Out of Office Reply - for working Mums going on a holiday

Hi Fellow Mums,

Today I'm going to give you a basic feature in Microsoft Outlook. Whether you are working from home or in an office, it's good to have your Out of Office (or what others call Auto Reply) when you're unable to respond to the sender immediately. This is great to use when you'll be away from work for few days, weeks or even months (e.g. Maternity leave). I hope you'll find this useful.

To begin with, log on to your Microsoft Outlook. At the top left corner of the homepage, click File

Then go to Info / Automatic Replies

Select the radio button "Send automatic replies" (screenshot below). 

Set the date you'll be away. Make sure to set the start and end date (screenshot below).

Create your reply message 1) within your organisation and 2) outside of your organisation (best for home based entrepreneurs / self employed. 

Press OK when finished.

Very easy! I hope you find this helpful! Thank you for reading! :)
