Creating an Out-of-Office message using the Zimbra Desktop Client

You can set a message that automatically replies to people who send you messages when you are out of the office for an extended period of time. Only one message will be sent to each unique sender per week.

To set a vacation message:

  1. Go to Preferences and select Mail.
  2. In the Receiving Messages section, check Send auto-reply message.
  3. In the text box, enter the message to be sent, such as "I am currently out of the office and am checking voice mail but not email."
  4. Set the start and end dates for sending the away message.
  5. Click Save.
