Setting automatic replies for Office 365 email accounts in the Outlook Web App

Setting up an automatic reply using the Outlook Web App:
    
1. Open the Outlook Web App and login to your account.

2. Click the "Settings icon" (Settings Icon) in the upper right corner to open settings. Select the third option, "Automatic Replies."



3. A side panel will appear on the ride side of the browser. Select "Send automatic replies" and enter information for other settings as desired.



  • If automatic replies are only desired during a specific time interval, check the box "Send replies only during this time period" and adjust the "Start time" and "End time" options.



  • To send only an internal (to individuals with an @wisc.edu) automated response, fill in the first dialog box with the desired message.



  • To send an external automated response, check the box "Send automatic reply messages to senders outside my organization" and chose between sending replies to only contacts or all external senders. Then fill in the dialog box with the desired message.




Be sure to press "Save" at the top of the page after all desired settings have been selected.



To turn off Automatic Replies:

If "Send replies only during this time period" was selected, automatic replies will turn off by itself. If it was not, they will need to be turned off manually. To do this:

1. Open the Outlook Web App and login to your account.

2. Click the "Settings icon" (Settings Icon) in the upper right corner to open settings. Select the third option, "Automatic Replies."

3. Select "Don't send automatic replies."



Note: Because wisc email accounts are configured as Exchange accounts, setting an automated reply using the Outlook Web App will automatically apply it to the Mac Mail Client and iOS Devices. The settings can be adjusting using any of these methods. Please click the following links for more information about configuring automated reply settings using those tools:
