You can choose to set up an autoresponder based on time or on dates. When people send you an email, they will automatically receive a notification with the message you have specified.
To set it up:
- Go to Settings > Forwarding and autoresponder
- Select “Autoresponder” or “Vacation Autoresponder”
- Fill in the time or date range and the message to be sent
- Check the box if you only want your contacts to see your autoresponse reply.
Note: you can set an autoresponder + a vacation autoresponder. In that case, the vacation autoresponder message will be sent during the time range specified.
