Enable / Disable the Vacation Script Using Portal
Once your vacation notice is created, you can enable the notice when you will be away. Don't forget, you must then disable the vacation notice when you return. Otherwise, those sending you mail will continue to receive a notice that you are out of the office.
Note: When the Vacation Script option is enabled, your notice is sent to anyone who sends you mail, including mailing lists. Be sure to unsubscribe to mailing lists before enabling the vacation script so that your notice is not sent to everyone subscribed to the mailing list.
