Disable Automatic Replies reminder RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two email accounts in Exchange. When I'm sending Automatic Replies from one of those accounts, Outlook shows a yellow bar reminding me that I'm sending Automatic Replies EVERY time I view my account. It's incredibly annoying. How do I prevent this reminder from showing continuously?

  • I'm now using Outlook 2016 and am delighted to learn that the reminder is only displayed once after I launch Outlook. I can now switch between my two email accounts, and the reminder does not show again as long as I don't restart Outlook.

  • Hi Jeff,

    Based on your description, did you get the yellow bar as shown in the following figure?

    As far as I know, there is no way to hide it, this bar is used to remind you have turned on this option. The X should turn it off for the current session.  Switching data files will turn it back on.

    I suggest you open a second window to work with another account as a workaround.

    Hope it's helpful.

  • Not a helpful reply, Clark. My question is how to keep the alert hidden when Automatic Replies are on. The scenario here is that I have auto replies intentionally turned on but I'm still using email, and I don't want to be constantly reminded that auto replies are on.

  • Emi, using a second window seems like a good idea to prevent the annoying reminder. Thx for the idea.
