The auto-responder is an automated message that will be sent as a reply to all incoming email messages. Many people use auto-responders as vacation messages or confirmations of receipt of the message.
To get started, click the Settings button on the main toolbar, and then select Auto-Responder under the My Settings tree view.
Enable Auto-Responder - This check-box allows you to quickly turn the auto-responder on or off. If the auto-responder is disabled, the Auto-Responder Message tab will not be enabled.
Disable responses to indirect mail – By checking this box, only mail sent directly to you will receive your auto-responder. Any mail you receive through a mailing list, forward, or an alias will not trigger your auto-responder.
Limit responses to one per day per sender - This will ensure that an email address only receives your auto-responder once per day, even if they send you multiple messages. If you disable this option, every email a particular address sends to will get responded to. It is HIGHLY recommended that you keep this option turned on to avoid the potential of your email address, your domain, or even potentially your entire mail server from becoming blacklisted by an ISP.
Note: This tab will only be enabled if the auto-responder is enabled.
Subject – Enter a subject for your auto-responder (e.g. Vacation).
HTML or Plain Text - Determine whether you want to compose your auto-responder in plain text or HTML.
Body - Enter a body, or text that you would like to include in the automatic response, for example:
* "I am on vacation in Hawaii, and will not have access to a computer until Monday."
