How to set up out of office replies using BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.1

How-To

Classic-OOOThe next time you’re going to be away from the office, use this tip to set up an out of office reply on your BlackBerry 10 device.

A new feature in BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.1 is the ability to set up an out of office reply inside your organization and optionally set up a separate out of office reply for those outside your organization (for those users who have a work account setup using the BlackBerry Enterprise Service).

Here’s how to do it!

Note: Some email accounts might not support out-of-office replies.

  1. In the BlackBerry Hub, tap Classic-3dot
  2. Tap Classic-Gear Settings followed by Email Accounts.
  3. Tap the desired email account.
  4. Turn on Send Automatic Replies.
  5. Do any of the following:
    • To send out-of-office replies inside your organization, enter a message in the Reply with field.
    • To specify a start time and end time to send out-of-office replies, turn on the Send Automatic Replies Between Specific Dates switch.
    • To send out-of-office replies outside your organization, turn on the Send Automatic Replies Outside of the Organization switch. If you want the message in your external out-of-office replies to be something different from your internal out-of-office replies, enter a message in the Reply with field.
  6. Tap Classic-Back Back when finished to save your changes
