How to create an E-mail Autoresponder when you are unavailable or on vacation?

If you are going for a holiday or will be unavailable for few days or a month, you can create an auto e-mail responder for your e-mails so that when people email you, they will receive an automated e-mail with your message like "I am on a holiday, please e-mail me in a few days' time".

1. Log into your cPanel account.
2. In the "**Mail**" section, click on the "**Autoresponder**" Icon.


3. On the "**Autoresponders**" page, click on the "**Add Autoresponder**" Button.

4. In the Interval field, specify the number of hours you wish the autoresponder to wait between responses to the same e-mail address.

5. In the Email field enter your email address on which you want to enable autoresponder. If you want to enable auto responder on [[email protected]](/cdn-cgi/l/email-protection), enter "**support**" (without the quotes) in the e-mail field and should you have multiple domains, select the appropriate domain from the dropdown list.

6. In the From field, enter the name that the auto-response will be from.
7. In the subject field enter your e-mail subject like "**I am on vacation**", etc.
8. Select the start and stop time of your autoresponder.
9. Click on the Create/Modify Button.
