Detail

WorkgroupMail v7
Edit the user properties in the WorkgroupMail Administrator to specify the message to be returned; either the default message or a specific message for this user. To enable the Out of Office function right click the user and select ‘Away from Office’, followed by the required return date option. To switch this feature off, right click the user and select ‘Back in Office’. When using WebMail, the out of office message can be customised and the feature enabled/disabled directly by each user.

WorkgroupMail v6
You can do this using the Content Filtering plug-in. Add a new rule for each user as follows:
(a) select ‘Check messages when they arrive’,
(b) select ‘Message sent to specific user or group member’ and add the required user
(c) select ‘Message sent from MailScan’ and change this to Not sent from,
(d) select ‘Send specific message to sender’. The subject and the body can be specified in the rule.

This rule can be disabled when the employee is in the office.
