Automatic response to my emails

Recommended Posts

Hello there, I am looking for a piece of software which will provide an acknowledgement of emails sent to my business email account advising that I would respond within a particular timescale and if the matter is urgent to contact me on my cell phone. Does anyone know of a piece of software that they have used successfully and hopefully free?

Yes, we just set them up inside our cpanel of our hosting account.


Personally I don't like autoresponders as they seem to fill up my email box whenever I send out a newsletter blast. However, I can see their benefit as you can relay information such as business hours, holidays/sick time, when you will respond back to the person emailing you. This does show interest on the VAs part :)

Yeah I don't like autoresponders either, they really annoy me. I know I sent the email and if they don't get back to me I'll try again later.


But like Tawnya said they would be good if I am on holidays or something. But I check my email everyday and if I'm away I notify my clients.


If you are setting autoresponders when you are away on holidays make sure to remove it when your back. I often get auto emails that say someone is away on holidays with a date that was weeks ago. To me this, shows that they don't pay attention to details and are not very organized.
