automatic reply

Hi all,

I need to set an auto reply on a user account. The idea is to let the sender know their email has been received NOT to let them know the user is out of office.

When the out of office assistant replies to the sender the subject says "out of office" this is not what i want it to tell the sender.

Is there anyway i can customise the subject of the auto reply?

Thanks

You do not state which email client you are using. If using Outlook this link shows you how to do it enter link description here

Or take a look in this list enter link description here

I don't know if those above links will help having read your post again.

However I use Incredimail and I can choose Automatic Reply Settings from the Tools Menu and type in whatever message I want - for instance "I have received your message and will be in touch a.s.a.p" This then doesn't give any indication that I am away or out of the office.

Look in your settings and you may find something similar.

This link may help you set the rule you want. Auto Reply

The only thing is, you may need to adjust the setting to ensure only the address you want to send the Auto Reply is nominated rather than it going to the world and his wife who send an e mail to you.

Cheers
