What is an Auto-Responder?

The auto-responder is a feature that will automatically respond to incoming E-mails with a message that you create. This is convenient when vacationing as you can set the auto-responder message to inform others that due to vacation (or another obligation), you will not be able to check your E-mail until a specific date when you return.


Unfortunately, I will be unable to check my E-mail from 03.05.2014 until 07.05.2014.

Your E-mails will not be forwarded.

Thank you,
John Smith
Please note:
The auto-responder will only reply once a day to each person that E-mails you. If someone forwards you 15 E-mails in one day, they will only be informed once.
