Hi Lalita, are you using outlook express in XP? If so, there is no one click solution. Firstly you have to create a new notepad document, open this in START>Programs>Accessories>Notepad. With this open, type the message you would like to be forwarded when you are out of the office. When you are happy with it, save it in your my documents folder as 'outofoffice'. You should now have the file 'outofoffice.txt' in your mydocuments folder. Next go into outlook express, goto Tools>message rules>Mail...>. A four part dialog box should appear. Under "1. Select Conditions for your rule" scroll to the bottom of the list and add a check mark to "For all messages". Under "2. Select Actions for your rule", check off "Reply with message". Under "3. Rule description" the follow items will now be listed: Apply this rule after the message arrives For all messages Reply with message You will see that 'meesage' is underlined, click on it, a dialog will open, make sure is 'my documents' folder, in 'files of type' drop down choose *.txt. (nearly there promise!) Your file 'outofoffice.txt' should appear, click it then click open. in rule description call it something like 'when out of office' and click ok. The rule dialog should now be there, the box will be ticked, that means you auto responder is turned ON. To turn off uncheck this box, and check it when you leave the office. If you close it, to find the rule again, just navigate to tools>message rules>mail..> and will show you the dialog again to turn it on and off. I hope that was reasonably clear, if not or you don't have outlook express leave a comment and I will try and help you further, otherwise Lalita, I hope this has helped! Si :)

This issue may occur if you deploy Outlook 2003 with the Microsoft Office 2003 Custom Installation Wizard and specify a personal folder (.pst) file in the Windows Installer transform (MST file) by using the Default location for PST files path option. The problem occurs because you specify a file name instead of a folder path.

To resolve this issue for future installations of Office, use the Custom Installation Wizard to edit the MST file. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. On the Change Office User Settings page (page 10 of 24), expand Microsoft Outlook 2003, expand Miscellaneous, and then click PST Settings.
  2. In the right pane, double-click Default location for PST files, and then type the path that you want in the Default location for PST files box. For example, type %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\.
  3. Click OK, and then follow the steps to complete the wizard. When you have corrected the MST file, deploy Office by using the correct MST file.
To resolve this issue for an existing installation of Outlook that is experiencing this problem, specify the .pst file by using the Mail icon in Control Panel.

Or If you are receiving and Err like
Error message when you start Outlook: "Unable to open the Outlook window," "No profile has been created," or "The list of Profiles cannot be loaded"Follow the step's below:This issue may occur on a computer that is running Windows XP if the Outlook.exe file was configured to open with the Windows program compatibility mode setting. When you set compatibility for Outlook to Windows 95 or to Windows 98/Windows Millennium Edition, Outlook displays this error message. This is because the location of the Outlook Profile information in the registry differs on a Windows XP-based computer.

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Locate Outlook.exe.

    Outlook.exe is typically located in one of the following folders, depending on the version of Outlook that you are running:
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 11
    • Microsoft Outlook 2002 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 10
    • Microsoft Outlook 2000 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 9
  2. Right-click Outlook.exe, and then click Properties.
  3. On the Compatibility tab, click to clear the Run this program in compatibility mode for check box.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Try to start Outlook. If you receive error message again, use Method 2.

You can use Files and Settings Transfer Wizard or User State Migration Tool. Also, with that size of an environment you should consider hosting your own mail and use Exchange. Also, are you in a domain environment?
