Question How do I set email (Outlook 2003) to forward to someone else while I'm out? ANSWER: In Outlook, click on Tools, Out of Office Assistant Click "I am currently out of the office…" and type your outgoing message, if any. Click "Add Rule" at the bottom left. Check the "Forward" box and click the "To" button to find the new recipient in the address book. Or just type their name in there and it SHOULD find it for you. Click OK, then "Yes" to the prompt "This rule will fire for all incoming messages." Click OK on the next screen to finish the process. You're all set.
