By default, out-of-office notices are sent only to people in your company.

Each person in your company who sends you mail receives only one copy of the out-of-office notice.

You continue receiving e-mail messages and you can respond to them while your out-of-office notice is turned on. The next time you log on to your computer, you are prompted to turn off the notice.
noteNote
You can also create an out-of-office notice by using Outlook Web Access. To access Outlook Web Access: from a computer connected to the Internet, navigate to your company's Remote Web Workplace, and then select Read my company e-mail.
