    Image
  5. Add details to the various fields as needed:
    imgNote: You may also want to set some values in the “Auto Reply Options” (for example 1440 minutes is 24 hours – so a frequent emailer does not get the auto reply message 5 times a day, but only once a day. This setting also helps to prevent cyclic auto replies with mailing lists and the likes). Another good one to use is the start and end dates for the auto reply.

    IMPORTANT: If you use AUTO REPLY you must include “Subject: ” and set some subject relevant to the auto reply. Otherwise this will not work.

  6. Click Save to save your settings.
