Out-of-office message examples
Before going on vacation or taking a few days off, it is ideal to set up automatic replies in Gmail when you are not in the office. In this way, we can reassure those who write to us for certain issues that require a quick response. Thanks to automatic replies, we can make it clear that for a few days we will not be checking email and that their message will be answered from the date when we return to the routine.
We will not even give the impression that we are ignoring anyone, while we get away from work to rest and enjoy our free time; we could say that this is a technological comfort on vacation. A little further down we are going to see how to set up out-of-office replies in Gmail in an extremely easy and quick way.
The first thing we’ll do is go to our Gmail account in Chrome, Firefox or Edge. Then, we will click on the gear-shaped button in the upper right corner of the screen.

There we activate this option to be able to configure the period of time in which we will be absent and write the email that we want to be sent in response to each person who sends us an email during those dates. We will have to write the subject and message of the mail to inform that until that date we are going to be out of the office or on vacation. It also allows us to activate only the automatic answer for only our contacts in case we want to avoid that it automatically answers to strangers.
