Setting autoresponder for a mailbox

The autoresponder feature sends an automatic response to incoming messages for a mailbox. When autoresponder is set up on a mailbox, email responses are sent automatically to the sender based on rules and intervals that you define. Autoresponder can be set up via the Reseller Control Panel or the Mail Administration Console (MAC). End users also can setup autoresponse text in the webmail.

Setting an autoresponder message in the Control Panel

  1. Log in to the Reseller Control Panel.
  2. In the Email section of the Control Panel, navigate to the user you want to modify and click the user name.
