How to set autoreply for another user in Exchange Server or Office 365

During the holiday season, many IT admins face the problem of setting an autoreply for another user on Exchange Server or Office 365. The story is often the same… An employee goes on vacation and forgets to set the autoreply in the Exchange/Office 365 mailbox. The only person capable of fixing this is usually the IT guy, who can use his or her admin rights to set the autoreply in Exchange Admin Center.

While many administrators don’t mind performing such small office tasks, others may find it distracting and would rather delegate setting autoreplies for users to a secretary or an HR specialist. In this article I am going to show you how you can grant Exchange or Office 365 autoreply editing rights to another user – not necessarily the admin – by installing a smart 3rd party tool called CodeTwo Out of Office Manager. Let’s get started then!

Using Google Analytics to track email signature marketing campaigns – part 1 (UTM tags)

When you first think of email marketing, newsletters and marketing automation are probably the first ideas that come to your mind. What marketers often forget, is that these two pretty obvious associations are not the only options here. Another great way of promoting your products and brand by email, are certainly centrally managed email signatures. Since email footers can contain branding and marketing banners, taking full control of what is stamped in employees’ signatures is a marketing opportunity no company should miss.

Wise marketers, however, not only run marketing campaigns, but also collect proper web analytics data to judge how their campaigns perform. This is usually the key to adjusting the marketing efforts and making them more effective in the future. In this article, I will show you how to use Google Analytics (currently the most widely used web analytics platform) for tracking your email signature marketing campaigns. I will use CodeTwo Exchange Rules for creating a company-wide email signature on Exchange Server and Google custom campaign parameters, for tagging the links used in it. I will also show you how to access the statistical information collected by means of the URL tags in the Google Analytics interface. Let’s cut to the chase then!
