How to Create an Email Autoresponder in Webmail
In this tutorial:
What is an AutoResponder?
An autoresponder is a feature within your email settings that allows you to automatically send a response when an email is sent to a specific email address.
When should I use an AutoResponder?
It's really up to you when to use the autoresponder feature. Typically, businesses will use the autoresponder feature to let others know when they are out of the office, to confirm receipt of an email, and to acknowledge and thank customers for an order that may have been placed.
How do I Setup an AutoResponder in Webmail

This will list the email address you are setting up the autoresponder for. From You can enter a "From" address here. I recommend using the same address you used in the Email field.

Unfortunately there is no way at this time to set up exceptions to receiving the auto responder message.

when i set up the autoreply, it replies back as 1 line...no body structure or anything...is there anyway to change this?

Thank you for contacting us. You can try using HTML to format the message, but keep in mind the recipients may not choose to display your email correctly, since it is a preference in their email client.

I already setup an auto response on my email. Work great btw! My default email I am using is Squirrel Mail.
But is there's a way I can set up a IP address detection as well?
i.e. Like someone send you email, you can see their IP address was sent from ?
Please advise help, thanks
