*** iGone is the most popular Out of Office app in the App Store! ***
Forgot to set your Out of Office on while your away from your desk? Don't worry! This small little app gives you the ability to login to your Outlook Web Access account and set your Out of Office status to On or Off. iGone Out of Office is convenient and works with Microsoft Exchange 2003, 2007, 2010, and NOW Office 365 versions. iGone Out of Office uses three (3) different methods to connect to Exchange, providing more reliability than any other Out of Office app.
iGone will also give you the opportunity to provide an auto-reply e-mail to those that try to reach you while you are gone. Now you can choose an auto-reply from one of your saved custom messages too, making it more convenient than ever. It's never been so easy to set your Out of Office status on and off. iGone.. but now everyone knows it!
SUPPORT: If you have any issues with your connection on iGone, please e-mail support at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are so many different possibilities for OWA that your situation might be a new one that needs to be accounted for in the code. With your help, we will get your account working, even if it means another update to the application.
RSA Tokens: Please note that RSA users will have to type in their token each time the app is opened, unless your token is static. Most RSA setups are supported, but if you can't get the app to work with your configuration, please e-mail support.
**** NOTE: This is for use with Microsoft Exchange servers (2003, 2007, 2010, and Office 365). If you do not have a public OWA url, you will need a VPN connection setup on your phone or in some cases through the web browser. ****
What's New in Version 5.98
- Added access for some mail servers protected with a Juniper VPN
Works like a charm!
It took a little bit to setup mainly because I wasn't sure of my exact exchange version, but it finally worked! As soon as it synced, it pulled up an old OOO message I had written, so I knew it was legit. I sent myself a test email, and it came through with my OOO message. I downloaded two other similar programs- neither of them worked. This one does.
My only suggestion (and the reason for four instead of five) is to update the intro graphic to make it look more professional and current.
Wish it had a time setting
Works fine. I have used other apps and this one definitely is not as easy. I don't know if it's the app or the fact that Exchange is getting more complicated (my old apps stopped working!). The developer is very helpful and responsive.
I withheld stars because you can't specify a time to stop the auto-reply (I tend to forget) and it's a bit slow (I'm always afraid it's not going to work). I do like that it has 3 different templates that you can develop and pick from.
It works. Great Support, too.
As with most well-written software, this works like a charm when the user input settings are correct. I had a connection issue (which ended up being a server alias issue on our side) which Matt helped me resolve within a few emails. It was not his code's problem, but he stuck with me anyway. That's great support!
