  • Choose Vacation from the Action window
  • Put your email address into the empty addresses field
  • Make sure to enter the message you want to reply with
  • Click add new rule
  • The rule is now added and switched on
  • When you return from holiday log back in to disable the rule. Go to Options, message filters, choose the rule and click disable.
