As above, i cant see any option for 'Out of Office' assistant in MS Outlook 2007, is it hidden somewhere?Its not under tools!!

Another think it does which is really annoying is kinda 'click' a few times randomly & the cursor disappears, the frame round the 'window' changes shade & im unable to type, how do i get ris od this? Does it on closing MS Outlook too!

The out-of-office option missing can be that the outex2.ecf file is missing. Try running Help > Office Diagnostics

I just checked mine, and I don't have that option, either. Where is it usually found in OE? I checked and I have the file mentioned above, yet still no option to put on an auto-sig, which I'll need to do, too, in about two week's time.

MS Outlook is different to OE.

MS Outlook's out-of-office works via Exchange Server. The sender of an email receives a response whether or not the user is logged on to their email account.

OE uses Message Rules. You set a rule to reply automatically to email received but OE needs to be running and connected to the email server to do this. Ref: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/267880
