Now you might think:
“If there is no charge for an Exchange Server, why hire one?”
It is true that only a mail exchange server can offer you the possibility to organize the email traffic in your absence in a way that makes sense. Therefore, the method described here is really just a stopgap that is not actually recommended permanently.
As previously described, the Auto Reply button will only be displayed if we have added an Exchange E-mail account in Outlook. So we do a workaround:
Write a new e-mail with the content that should automatically be sent to a sender as a reply, leaving the recipient line free
In the “Start” tab, go to “Save as”, select “Outlook Template * .oft” as the file format and save the template
