Autoresponders

You can configure your email account to send automated emails. This can be useful if you are on vacation or unavailable, or if you have a generic message that you wish to send from a support email address.

This feature allows you to configure automatic email response messages. This is useful, for example, when the recipient is unavailable.

Note: When you activate an autoresponder, the system still delivers messages to the inbox as usual.

To find an autoresponder’s specific email address, enter a keyword in the Search text box and click Go.

Important:

User-defined autoresponders ignore messages to which Apache SpamAssassin™ assigns a score of 5 or higher.
