Out-of-office or vacation messages are a great way to let people know you may be delayed in getting back to them, or that your email address is changing. Google offers a service for Gmail users that allows for automatic out-of-office replies. Wharton students may find the service useful for the following situations:
- Travel during School Breaks
- Notifying contacts that email address will change (following Graduation or other circumstances).
