If you have a UEA email account (ie your email address ends in @uea.ac.uk) you can redirect your email to someone else while you are away from UEA, or automatically send a reply to people sending you emails.
For example, when you go on holiday you could forward copies of all your email to a colleague and/or secretary, and automatically send a reply, acknowledging receipt of the message and giving your holiday dates. You could also choose to keep copies of your email to read when you return.
Once you have set up forwarding on either type of account it is highly advisable to check it by sending yourself a test message.
