Suggestion for out of office message

by Volker Weber

I am out of the office until January 6th. When I return, I will delete all email and voice messages from my inbox and start the new year with a clean slate. If your message is still important in January, I suggest you send it again after the 6th.

... your mail will not be forwarded.

For multi user offices ;)

This year I choose: I left the company and will not return.

Just perfect! Wish that people would actually use this.

cool, but I think very few people will read that completely.

I'd get fired. But still might be worth it.....

Some administrative Person in Cologne did that and the whole thing boiled up to the BILD (lazy bastard, bla di bla), instead of realizing that this should be the default way which would be much better than stalling the returning person for at least half a day.

By searching the story I stumbled across news that Daimler would be deleting mails automatically for people in holiday. There's hope.

Shall I remember this for you?

Use your full name and a working email address. Unless you want your comment to be removed. No kidding.

As most of my articles roll off the front page rather quickly, I am making an archive of previous posts available here. You can also use the handy search box at the top of the page if you are looking for something particular.
