How do I set an out of office auto reply?

You can set an auto reply in Exchange and in Gmail following the steps listed below.

When you're going to be away from your email for an extended period of time, you can use the auto-reply filter to automatically reply to your incoming email to inform senders that you're away, when you'll be back, and perhaps let them know who they can get in touch with for help while you're gone.
