Creating an Autoresponder in cPanel
An auto responder is a handy tool provided free of charge with your hosting account that allows to you automatically send a reply when a specific email address receives an email. If you decide to go on vacation, you can easily let people who contact you know you are currently away and will respond to their request when you return. It's also great to use to notify customers you have received their email and they will get a response in a pre-determined time frame.
The first step when setting up an auto responder is to log into cPanel. Auto responders can be created through webmail as well, however we will be setting up an auto responder in cPanel. Once you have logged into cPanel, go to the "Mail" section and select Auto Responders:
