I glanced at the web based settings and I do not see one for Auto-Reply; maybe I missed it.

Perhaps others know of a way to do what you want... maybe via an e-mail client on your computer.

UsernameIssues you just go to Hotmail or Outlook , then you see a settings icon , once you do that you will see a more email settings. From there you go to Sending automated vacation replies . There you are :)

The vacation feature is disabled on the Hotmail account that I checked. Perhaps if you have a phone number associated wit the account - it gets turned on.

Hotmail is handled thru the same outlook.com web-based interface these days.

If the account has not been verified - then you should see this:

And those screenshots are from an outlook.com account.

I understand that... but you have a good thread title. Many people will follow Google straight to this thread. I wanted it mentioned the hotmail/outlook accounts will not have the feature turned on unless one jumps thru the verification hoops.

Thanks for letting me throw so info into the thread - even if you don't need it
