- For instance, you can set up a vacation responder in your email, to let people know that you’re unavailable and what their options are.
- There are various steps you can take for managing voicemail while you’re out.
- If you use a personal device to check email, you can turn off notifications for your work accounts. Here’s how to do that on Android devices and Chromebooks, iPhone and iPad, Mac, and Windows.
