Are you looking to set up an out-of-office auto-reply on your iPhone? If so, you’re in luck! With the Outlook app for iPhone, it’s easy to set up an auto-reply that will let people know that you’re away from the office and when they can expect a response.

First, open your Outlook app on your iPhone and tap the mailbox icon at the bottom left. This will bring up a list of your mailboxes. From there, tap on the gear icon at the top of the Mailboxes list, then choose Preferences.

Once you’re in Preferences, tap on Auto-Reply and select “Automatically reply to messages when they are received.” Then type in the message that you want to send out to people who email you while you’re away. You can also set an optional date range here; any emails sent within that date range will receive your autoreply. When finished, simply click Done and your auto-reply is good to go!

Now that you have an autoreply setup, you can spend less time checking emails while away from work and more time focusing on important tasks or enjoying yourself – both of which are important for keeping stress levels low and productivity high!

Setting up an out-of-office auto-reply with Outlook for iPhone is easy and takes only a few minutes. So if you haven’t already done it, be sure to give it a try – it just might make life a little easier!

This means that you cannot set up an automatic reply directly in Outlook. However, you can still set up a rule that will reply to incoming messages if you leave Outlook running.
