I have a windows xp microsoft office 2007 Using Microsoft Outlook, I am trying to set up an "out of office reply" or "vacation reply" automatically on all incoming messages. I have...


Here is a link from the Microsoft Outlook archives which explains step-by-step how to set up an automatic out of office reply in Outlook 2007:

http://blogs.office.com/b/microsoft-outlook/archive/2008/11/25/preparing-to-be-away.aspx


Before you go on vacation or leave the office for an extended period of time (for example, before you leave for Thanksgiving), there are a few small things you can do to make your colleagues aware of your upcoming absence and to plan accordingly.
Letting people know you are going away It is generally a good idea to let the people you work with know that you are going away. Over the years, I have seen many different techniques, and this one seems to be the most effective while being the least intrusive: schedule a meeting. The key is to remember that this meeting is for their calendars and not for yours. This way, while you are away, they will have their calendar as a reference
clip_image002_thumb.jpg
  1. Recipients: Your manager, your peers who contact you regularly or who you work with closely.

  2. Dates: Check the "All day event" checkbox and schedule the meeting for the work days you are away. (Do not use the exact times you will be leaving unless your absence is for less than a day.) For example, if you are leaving over the weekend, set the start date to Monday.

  3. Location: You don't need to add a location, but if you do, you can put where you are going, or how you can be contacted (or not contacted.)

  4. Free/Busy: Mark the meeting as a "Free" meeting (as opposed to busy, out of office or tentative) This is the default for all day events.

  5. Responses: Request no responses. Your colleagues shouldn't have to approve your vacation. ;-)

  6. Message: Include the dates you will be gone and alternate contacts. You should use the same message in your Out of Office message (see below).
Setting an Out of Office message - Microsoft Exchange Accounts only Next you should set your Out of Office message anytime before you leave.
  • Dates: Check the box next to "Only send during this time range" so that when you return to the office, Out of Office messages will automatically stop being sent . You should set the dates to encompass the entire time you will be away, including weekends and up until the moment you return to the office.

  • Message: It is a best practice to include:
  1. When you will be back. The date of your return should be included as part of your message, and it is best if it is in bold. If you want to take it a step further, you can add a mini-calendar to illustrate when and how long you will be away.

This mini-calendar was created just by typing it in using the font Lucida Console and bold purple for vacation, gray for in the office, and bold red for the day I get back.

  • Who to contact for various matters in your absence.
    clip_image004_thumb.jpg
Other uses for Out of Office Messages You can use the Out of Office assistant any time you want to let people know that you will be delayed in responding to their e-mail. For example, just after you return from vacation and have a mountain of e-mail to go through, it is wise to set up an Out of Office message indicating that you will not be responding quickly. If you are working on a project, even if you are in the office, setting an Out of Office message will help set realistic expectations of when people will receive a response.
If you do not have an Exchange account You can still send automatic replies to incoming e-mail, just like the Out of Office feature. For details, see this article. If you have a Hotmail account, you can use Hotmail's vacation feature.

Unable to open microsoft office outlook 2010 and link it to my hotmail acct


1. Upgrading to Outlook 2010 with a profile that contains at least one DAV and/or OLC 12 account
If your Outlook profile already included a Hotmail account, Outlook 2010 shows a dialog to indicate that in order to continue synchronizing between Outlook and the service you need to download and install Outlook Connector 14.

Clicking on "Upgrade Now" automatically starts the download of the OLC 14 package. Should you choose "Remind me later" you will still be able to browse the previously downloaded data for the Hotmail account, but you won't be able to synch until OLC 14 is installed. clip_image001_thumb.png Once Outlook 2010 is open the following message will be displayed in the main Outlook explorer if OLC 14 is needed: clip_image003_thumb.png Should you chose not to download the OLC and dismiss the message, Outlook offers another redirector in the BackStage - just select the Hotmail account in the account picker and the following prompt will appear: clip_image005_thumb.png Clicking on the Upgrade Now button will automatically start the download of the OLC 14.

2. Adding a @hotmail.com, @live.com or @msn.com accounts through the Add New Account dialog
Should you choose to add a new account that uses the @hotmail.com, @live.com or the @msn.com domain and OLC 14 is not installed, Outlook 2010 will prompt you to download and install it: clip_image007_thumb.jpg

Note: Should you choose not to install the OLC 14, Outlook 2010 will attempt to establish a connection to the server using the POP protocol. However this method only allows downloading your mailbox, while Outlook Connector also lets you view and update their Hotmail and Windows Live Inbox, Calendar and Contacts in Outlook.

Lost Outlook.pst files


If you happened to backup your pst files, you can restore them. Here is a knowledge base article from Microsoft on the subject:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287070

If you do not have a backup copy, you could try doing a system restore to a time before they were lost. System restore must be enabled on your computer to do this. Make sure to save and/or backup anything recent before doing this. To do a system restore in XP, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Then select a date that is available for restore and roll back to then.

Office Outlook 2007 crashing everytime


Hey,

I was having the same problem with Outlook 2007 on my Laptop, looked for all the possible resolutions but no Clue..
Then I tried to check the addins I was using in Outlook 2007, I found that after disabling the unnecessary addins from Regsitry I am able to use outlook 2007 without any issues.

For Disabling the outlook addisn you have to go to:
Start> Run> Type Regedit> Hit Entre> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>MICROSOFT>OFFICE> OUTLOOK>ADDINS there you will find all the Addins, Please right click on the onw which is not required to go to modify & change the value to 0.
It will disable the Addins from Registry. we can enable the Addin when ever required.

Close & re launch your Outlook.

Hope this will help you in resolving the issue related to the outlook crashing.

Cheers!!!!
