Managing Your Email During an Absence

Automatic out-of-office replies to incoming e-mail

Out-of-office email tells people who send you messages that you are away. You can use it to tell senders how long you will be gone, and perhaps who to contact in your absence. If you use the central campus email service, go here to set up your message: Out Of Office email setup form. If you have a different email service, check its instructions to learn how to set an out-of-office message.

To access your email while you're away...

Use your email program, such as DavisMail or Microsoft Outlook; or, if you use the central campus email service, you can use UC Davis' secure, Web-based email program, Geckomail, to check your UC Davis email. Find it at http://geckomail.ucdavis.edu/
