An auto-responder is a predefined message, that is sent automatically as an answer to each message received inside a mailbox with this feature enabled. Two of the most common cases for using this function are automatic e-mails that one is briefly out of the office or that an order has been received successfully. An auto-responder may also be used as a common confirmation that the e-mail has been delivered successfully, which can be something quite important in business communication. The message that's delivered can be pretty much anything and can be modified depending on the circumstances and exactly what the auto-responder will be employed for. As the function is enabled server-side, there isn’t anything you are expected to do by hand and you don't need an email program to be active at all times for the automatic reply to be sent to the person sending you an email.
Auto-responder Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you host your domains in a shared hosting account with us, you are able to set up an auto-responder email for any of the email addresses you make from the account. It's possible to view all of the mailboxes shown alphabetically in your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable the function is either to click the auto-responder icon for any mailbox or to right-click on that mailbox and to pick the feature from a context menu. A box will show up on screen and you just have to write the needed message and save it, so creating an auto-responder takes basically only two clicks. In the very same way you are able to also delete or revise an active message. Hepsia makes it simple even to set up an auto-responder for several email addresses at the same time, which can save precious time assuming that several people are using emails that you have created to take days off, for example.
Auto-responder Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server plan to host your domain names with us, you will be able to easily activate the auto-responder option for the mailboxes you create in your account. You can do this from the Emails part of our intuitive Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where one can view a list of all of your mailboxes. A little icon will highlight which one has an enabled auto-responder and which does not. To create, edit or delete a message, click on the corresponding image for the specific e-mail address, enter the content you want to use, save the change and you will be all set. If you choose several e-mails, you are able to enable or disable the feature for them in bulk, with very little efforts.
