If you are unable to access your emails for a length of time you can set up an out-of-office message.
Anyone sending you an email will receive an automatic reply containing your customised message.
When creating an out-of-office message consider the following:
- Keep messages short and concise.
- Whenever possible include details of alternative appropriate work colleague(s) that senders could contact in your absence.
- Do not say that you are away on holiday / out of the country between certain dates.
- Do not put any personal contact details in messages (home address, home telephone number, etc.).
