You can inform about upcoming absences or state your working days. Include that information after the sender information (format see e-Mail  text) 

5. (Optional) Call-to-action

Every day, our e-Mails reach potential partners or talents. An e-Mail gives us the opportunity to communicate interesting facts about the company. For that, it is possible to include up to 3 links between the sender information and confidentiality notice . The links should point to Roche-owned resources, accessible for an external audience (format see e-Mail text).
