Hi all,

Am currently trying to help a friend with her outlook out of office assistant. She uses outlook 2003 on her personal laptop for her pop3 email. Because its not corporate it doesn't have the out of office assistant option.

Is there a way around this - or is there a third party that can be used??

Many thanks

Depends on where she pops her mail from.  Her mail provider (gmail/hotmail/etc) may have a vacation response option.

Here is a link that will show you how to set up a template and rule that will autoreply just like the Out of Office Assistant.

The only solution is using your mail provider's out off office function if they provide one, like larsrohr suggested, or create a rule in outlook using a template like muganthony suggested but this requires your computer to stay ON at all time so it can process incoming mails and respond with your out of office rule.

Unless you have a machine that stay on all times, a server like at your provider or your own computer, there's no way or third party software that can do this.
