In Outlook for iOS and Android, you can set up Out of Office replies for Microsoft 365, Exchange, Exchange (Hybrid), and accounts.

To set up out of the office replies, tap Settings, tap your account, tap Automatic Replies, and then toggle the switch on.

You can:

  • Choose to Reply during a time period by turning that switch to on and setting the start and end time

  • Create an event on your calendar that shows you as out of office during the time period by turning Block my calendar to on and specifying a name for your calendar event.

  • Clear meetings during the time period by selecting Clear my calendar and choosing the meetings you wish to cancel or decline

  • Reply to everyone or reply only to your organization.

    • You can also set up different messages for your organization and external senders.

Tap done once to save your your automatic reply once you've set it.
