The Out-of-Office Message is an effective way to alert people who send email messages that you may not respond immediately. Within the SPU campus Microsoft Exchange system, you can set your out-of-office reply from within Outlook 2010/2013 and from Webmail.

Exchange keeps track of who has received out-of-office automatic replies and doesn't keep sending the message if it has already been sent.
