Email Autoresponder

Email Autoresponder allows you to set up automated replies to incoming email. This feature can be useful for confirming the receipt of mail, or for informing correspondents that the recipient is unavailable (for example, while on vacation).

To Add or Edit an Autoresponder

To view autoresponders for a specific domain on your account:

  1.  Log in to your Afeeshost cPanel account.
  2.  Go to Email.
  3.  Select Autoresponders.
  4.  Click Add Autoresponder to create a new autoresponder. Or, find a current autoresponder and click Edit.
  5.  Enter the Interval, in hours, you wish for the autoresponder to wait between responses to the same email address.
    • For example, if you set up an autoresponder with an interval of 24, and you receive an email from at 8 am on Monday, the autoresponder will respond to his message immediately. If, however, continues to email you throughout the day, the autoresponder will not send him another response for 24 hours after his initial email (in this case, 8 am Tuesday). If he emails you again after the 24-hour interval expires, he will receive an auto-response.
  6.  Enter the Email Address your setting up the Autoresponder for.
  7.  In From type the name you want to show in the response.
  8.  In Subject enter the subject you wish to show in the response.
  9.  If the message includes HTML tags, click the HTML Message checkbox.
  10.  In the Body field, type the text of the response.
  11.  Select when you want the Auto Responder to Start and Stop.
  12.  Click Submit to save the new autoresponder.

In the message body, you can include tags, enclosed in percent signs (%). You can use these tags to insert information, such as the incoming email's sender or subject, into the body of the email. Available tags are:

%subject% — The subject of the message that was sent to the autoresponder.

%from% — The name of the sender of the message received by the autoresponder, if available. (If the sender's name was not received, %from% will print the sender's email address.)

%email% — The sender's email address.

Remove an Auto Responder

To delete an autoresponder:

  1.  Log in to your AfeesHost cPanel account.
  2.  Go to Email.
  3.  Select Autoresponders.
  4.  Click Delete next to the appropriate autoresponder.
  5.  Click Are you sure? to confirm that the responder should be deleted. If you wish to keep the autoresponder, click Cancel.
