We are usually averse to receiving auto replies. But sometimes, people will write useful information in it, such as his agent or his emergency telephone number. This article will help you to highlight those auto replies with Important Information.

If I will go for a holiday, I also tend to create an auto reply for my email account. Besides, in this auto reply we will write in my emergency telephone number, such that those who have an emergent deal with me can call this number. Actually multiple people have this habit, thus I also create a rule for the auto replies with specific texts.

  2. Click the “View Settings” button and select “Conditional Formatting” in the new popup dialog box.Conditional Formatting

Keep Vigilant at Outlook Errors

Due to its multiple functions, Outlook has been touted as the most popular email client in the market. Not only can we deal with emails, but also we are capable of managing contacts, arranging schedules and subscribing newsletters. However, same as the other email clients, errors frequently occur to Outlook. Some users are inclined to ignore the small errors if Outlook can solve it by itself. Virtually we should never disregard any errors, which can lead to big crashes at times. In addition, keeping a repair tool is a matter of necessity, such as DataNumen Outlook Repair.
