How do I setup an auto-responder?
Posted by Joe Rebis (Import) on 16 September 2006 10:56 PM
An auto-responder is a way to automatically reply to an email with a pre-defined message. This is also the same way you would setup a Vacation Message. When a user sends an email to this account, they will receive your pre-defined message automatically and you will also get a copy of their message in that email box. You would check email as normal. To cut down on unecessary emails, they will only receive your message once-per-day, per auto-responder.
Windows Hosting (or Shared Services) Account
SUGGESTION - also Click the switch on the right that says "Limit responses to once daily"
HINT: Many forget to turn off their Autoresponder, so there is also a feature here to turn on "Only send between certain dates"
NOTE: Auto-responders will respond to anyone - including spammers. Often times the spammer will use a fake email address when sending email so your auto-responder will "bounce-back" with an error. Disregard these notices when using an auto-responder.

HINT: Many forget to turn off their Autoresponder, so there is also a feature here to 'Start' and 'Stop' it on certain date and time
