Setting up a vacation message/out-of-office auto reply

If you are unable to answer your emails, for example, because you are on vacation, it is a good idea to set up an out-of-office reply. That way, people are aware that you might not answer right away.

A good out-of-office reply lets people know that you are not available, when you are expected to be back and who to contact instead. You can also use an auto reply to send a confirmation that an email has been received.

  1. Log in to Webmail and click Settings.
  2. Click on Auto reply in the menu to the left.
  3. Check the box to enable auto reply.
  4. Enter a subject for your auto reply.
  5. Type in a message for your auto reply.
  6. Click Save at the top of the screen.
Tip: You can also set up an auto reply from Mail Administration in the control panel, where you can manage all email accounts on your domain.
You can enable an auto reply from Settings in Webmail.

What should you enter for the reply-to address?

Additionally, you can specify a reply-to address when you set up the auto reply message. You can also leave it empty.

If you do enter a reply-to address and someone responds to your vacation message, the email will be sent to that address. This can be useful if you want people to contact someone else, or write to an alternative address.

Tip: Remember to disable your auto reply message again when it's no longer needed.
