One of my favorites is the ability to send automatic replies to all emails that arrive; either to inform you that you are on vacation or to keep in touch with your customers.

Outlook.com design is very simple, so you’ll be able to send automatic messages with a few clicks.

As you can see, Hotmail will send an automatic reply mail to whoever you want: it can be only those people who are in your contact list or anyone who sends you an email.
