Set an Out of Office Rule

Are you going to be away from your GroupWise mailbox for a day or more? An out of office rule automatically replies to your e-mails while you're away.

It's a good idea to state your return date, an alternate way to contact you if appropriate, and another person who is covering for you if appropriate.

In GroupWise, Tools > Vacation Rule

Go to Tools, then choose Vacation Rule

Check the "Activate my vacation rule" box.

Write the message people will get from you. 

If you are on a listserv, you may not want to reply to external users.

Choose the dates the rule will be in effect.

Set up the vacation rule message and dates
