By using POP or an IMAP account you don't have access to the automatic replies feature means out of office feature. But if you leave Outlook running when you are away, then you can use rules to reply to your email messages automatically. These rules also allow you to forward emails to another account, mark messages as read, or move them to a folder automatically. By default, you cannot use rules with Microsoft Exchange Server accounts starting with Exchange Server 2010 to forward messages to email addresses outside your organization. With this setting your confidential and private organizational information is prevented from being disclosed. Only an Exchange administrator can change this setting.
