When you are going on vacation, there is an option in some mail programs such as Outlook to reply with a message saying anything you want.  After you turn on auto reply, there is a text field where you can type in your message.  In general, this is what I have seen the most.  Once again, the following is not spoken, but email language.

'I will be vacation until June 4th.  I will be on email occasionally, but if you have an emergency, you can reach me at 555-555-5555.  For information on financial reports, contact Suzy Mae.  For information on quarterly earnings, contact Jim Beam.  For other urgent matters, contact Billy McHale.'
