What is an email auto-responder, and how can I set one up?

You can use an autoresponder to send a message back automatically to anyone who sends an email to a certain e-mail address on your account. This can be useful for times when you are on vacation or unavailable, or if you have a generic message that you wish to send in response to an inquiry: for instance, you may have a generic sales@yourdomain autoresponder that lets the person know you will answer their question as soon as possible, and providing alternate contact information.

Autoresponders can be setup in cPanel via the “Mail -> Autoresponders” section.
