Out-of-Office Message

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.).
