Please could you let me know how to put an out of office message on a shared in box.

RE: Outlook

Hi Rosamond

Thanks for your question and sorry it's taken so long to reply.

An Out of Office Message can be set for an Outlook account even if the folder is shared. This will need to be set up by the owner of the folder.

Select File, Info, Automatic Replies

Click Send Automatic Replies

Enter the automatic message text for both inside and outside the organisation.

Specify a date range if you wish for the out of office to be active.

I hope that helps.
