When you have no internet connection and are required to tell some important people that you won’t be able to reply, set your email address to auto response. This is a really great service because you will be able to reply automatically to your contacts whenever they try to contact you through email.
The time limitation can be set according to your will. When the person wants to get to you again and again, the reminder will tell him that you are still away. If your vacations are near, read this article. It will help you to set your auto reply easily.
- Log in to your Gmail account. On the first Gmail page, you will see the gear icon on the very right of the screen. Click that Gear Icon and in the drop down menu you will find the Settings option, click on Settings.
- In the General tab when you scroll down the page you will find the Vacation responder section. Check on the Vacation Responder. You will find the subject and the Message option there.
Write the subject and message according to your engagements in vacations. You can also set the date and the time on which you will be away - the date of the first vacation day and last day can be set.
NOTE: It is up to you to whom you want to reply with the vacation response. If you don’t want to send the auto reply to everyone who sends you mail, you can check the option below the message box. It will then send the auto reply to your contacts only. In addition to this, if you are a Google App user, you will find another option that also restricts your auto reply to the people using your domain.
- If you use signature in your email, your signature will automatically be sent with the vacation response. Save the changes you made after everything is complete.
- If you want to make changes to the vacation auto reply message, you can go to the Vacation Settings. The messages that are spam or sent to you through a mailing list would not get your auto reply.
When you enable the vacation responder, at the top of the Gmail page you will see a banner. That banner will be showing your vacation response subject. When you want to end the automatic response service, you can click END NOW button that is present on the banner.
This Gmail service is great and easy to use. It will help you to enjoy your vacations but will still be giving replies to the ones who contact you by email.
