Email autoresponse (Outlook, Eudora, Thunderbird, etc.)

by 4 comments
Hello everyone,

I'm looking to create an email autoresponse for when I'm gone during Labor Day weekend, but I need some help, because I'm not sure Outlook Express is the best way to go about this (I've heard that I'll need to leave my computer on if I want an autoresponse to be sent when I get an email from someone).

(a) Do you recommend a different solution (Eudora, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc.)?
(b) Is that correct about Outlook Express (computer must be on)?
(c) Any other tips/ideas?

As affiliate manager at, I get several emails/day for customer service, affiliate service, JV proposals, etc., and I want to be able to instantly point people in the right direction while I'm gone so that people don't have to wait up to 3 days, or so, for a reply.

I usually take my laptop with me when I go away, but I wanted to prove to my wife and kids that I can TRULY devote 100% of my attention to them without "checking email" for at least a few days. :-)

Thanks for your help!

Warmest regards,

Andy Hussong

    Hi Andy,

    Do you mean like a vacation autoresponse?

    In Gmail this is how you do it,

    Go to Settings>General then Vacation Response select "On".

    Then just enter your vacation message on the box.

    Anybody emailing you on that address with vacation mode will receive your away message.
