Hi, this is Tony from Grassroots IT. This is a short video on how to set an automatic reply on your email account in Outlook 2013. First off, open up Outlook. Click on File, Info, and then Automatic Replies.

Now on the window that pops up, you'll see that you can set to send an automatic reply. You can tell it to send only during a specific time range. That means it'll automatically start when you tell it to and automatically end.

You can specify a different automatic reply to go to people inside your organization and outside if you'd like. Please note that each person who sends you an email, while the auto reply is active, will only receive the auto reply once, so they don't get spammed.
