Using the Out of Office Assistant, you can easily send automated replies to incoming email. Out of Office auto-replies can be customized for recipients both inside and outside of Yale. For example, you might want a more generic message sent outside of Yale — perhaps one that does not list alternate contact names, phone numbers, or email addresses. You can also schedule auto-replies in advance with a start and stop time.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In the context of the Office 365 email service, a sender from "Outside My Organization" is a sender with an email account on any email system other than Office 365 email (EliApps in addition to any outside services such as Google, Hotmail, etc.). Therefore, if you intend for auto-replies to be sent to anyone at Yale who sends email to you, you must configure the Out of Office Assistant to include auto-replies to senders inside and outside your organization.
