How do I add an Autoresponder?

Regardless of which web mail you use (or even if you don't use web mail at all), you can set an auto response message when you are on vacation or away from your email.

This message will be sent to everyone who sends you email.

Before diving into how to do this: please remember that setting an auto-responder may cause some surprises for you.

Consider how much email you get that you don't want an auto response to go to. For example, email discussion lists. Automated vender emails and reminders. Spam. Our auto responder does its best to not respond to spam or email list mail, but at times it does make mistakes.

While wanting an auto-responder is reasonable, the way email works in the world is unfortunately not conducive to it!

If you would like to set an auto-responder anyway, you can do so by logging into the Members Control Panel and click the My Settings Link.
