  3. Click the Settings icon

  4. Click the Auto-Responder option

  5. Choose which basic options you will need

    Enable auto-responder: Enables the auto-responder functionality
    Disable responses to indirect email: This prevents responses to messages not sent to you directly (i.e. if you aren't in the To: line and this is checked, a response won't be sent
    Limit responses to once daily: Auto-responses only get sent to an email address once a day if this is checked.  If left unchecked, auto-responses will be sent to all new mail

  6. Click the Message tab.  This will only be available if the Enable auto-responder box, above, is checked.

  7. Give the email a subject

  8. Configure the start and end dates for the auto-responder.  If you want the auto-responder to start immediately and continue indefinitely, clear the Enable active date range checkbox
