Auto Responders

Configuring Email Auto responders

An auto responder allows you to send an automatic reply to any inbound email message. Common uses are when someone is temporarily on vacation, or for a sales or information request where you send an instant acknowledgement, or to notify senders that the email address they are sending to has been changed to an updated address.

You can centrally manage all auto-responders from within cPanel or any webmail user may also create them from their webmail.yourdomain interface.
