I'd would be nice if I could set an auto reply with the app.
Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.
It is currently already possible to set an out of office message in the app for Exchange and Office 365 account.
To setup out of the office replies, tap settings > tap your Office365 or Exchange account > tap Automatic Replies > toggle the switch on.
You may choose:
1.) Reply to everyone
2.) Reply only to my organization
You can also set up a different messages for your organization and external senders.
Tap done once you have set up your automatic reply.
Having trouble finding the feature? Let us know through the Help section of the app in the Settings. We’re here to help.
Thank you again for your support, we look forward to hearing more of your ideas very soon.
All the best
The Outlook Mobile Team

Frustrating not being able to set auto reply on phone. If I forget before I leave the office I’d have to go back to the office. No easy access, if any access, to this feature in the app.

Is now only available to set up the auto reply which login the mail from web site BUT cannot do the auto reply setting from the Outlook Apps.
Looking forward to improving it!
