Questions Considered:

Autoresponder automatically sends a preset message in reply to all mail sent to the autoresponder's e-mail address. They don't store the incoming mail as mailboxes do, nor can they be used to send messages other than the preset autoresponse.

 

Creating Autoresponders

To create an autoresponder:

  1. Click New E-mail on the maildomain Controls page or click the name of the existing mail resource:
  2. If you chose New E-mail, enter the autoresponder name in the Email address field. If you choose the existing mail resource, skip to Step 4.
  3. Enable antispam and antivirus for mail SMS. For security reasons, we strongly recommend it to minimize the risk of using your Mail SMS for distributing spam.
  4. Scroll down to the Autoresponder section and fill out the form:
    • Check the box next to AUTORESPONDER.
    • Enter the uniform response in the Message field and its title in the Subject field.
    • (HS 3.1 Beta 1 +) Enter Sender Filter which restricts the range of possible sender e-mail addresses.
      Autoresponder Warning

      Autoresponder appears as marked and won't work until you configure Sender Filter:
    • Include incoming message: if you want to quote the original message in the autoresponse.
      If you check this option, there is a risk for your autoresponder to be used for distributing spam messages sent to it from intruders. To minimize this risk, configure antispam for the autoresponder as it is said in the item 4 above.
    • Add attachments to your autoresponder, for instance your corporate logo.
