MS Outlook Express question

I am going to be taking a week or two off from work and I was wondering how to set up my email up to auto forward a message. Basically I want it to send anyone that sends me an email a message saying I am out of the office, can some tell me how to do that please. I have been jacking with it for about 15 minutes and I haven't gotten anywhere but pissed off, lol. TIA.

I'm not sure where it is in Outlook Express. I haven't used that program since the 90s.



In Outlook, it's under Tools-> Out of Office Assistant

Yeah we are alittle outdated up here, lol. I checked tools first but I didn't see anything that looked like it.

This type of request is usually done on the server level. You need to contact whoever is hosting your email and they will do this on the top level. This should not be applied on the local computer.

Correct, since you probalby won't be leaving your computer on, having it download your mail for you, while you are away, it won't be of any good.

Contact whomever is in charge of your email, they should be able to set it up

Damn that sucks I didn't want to have to go through all that crap, too bad there isn't a way to do it on my computer.
