Are you going out on your vacations? And don’t want your professional life ruins your enjoyment? Then you must read this post. This is a perfect solution for your problem. Gmail auto responder works like a charm and notify your clients or friends that you are away. If you are not going to vacations then also this can help as an auto reply which is very helpful. Gmail auto responder is easy to set up and also to remove it after some time if you want to. It will automatically respond to the incoming mails and notify the sender about your message and you don’t have to login or write the same message for other people.
I will show you how you can setup an auto reply message in Gmail inbox to notify your friends about your absence. You just have to tweak some general settings of your Gmail mailbox and you can easily configure your auto responder. Below I have given step by step methods to turn your auto reply on.
Steps For Setting Up Auto Responder.
- Go to Gmail and log in with your credentials.
- After you log in, you may get your all mails. That is your inbox page.
- You may see a gear button on top right side. Click on it.
- A dropdown menu will appear. Click on “Settings” from that menu.
- Now you may get General Setting page which we need.
- Just scroll down until you get “Vacation Responder’ option.
- Choose “Vacation Responder on” by clicking radio button.
- You can see three input fields where you have to fill necessary information.
- Choose the date of start. On this day your Auto responder will be active to reply automatically.
- Choose the end date if you wish to disable it at specific date. Leave as it is if you want auto responder lifetime.
- After the dates you have to set up a subject for your mail.
- After your subject write your away message or thank you message in your own style. It can be formal or informal. You can see auto reply message examples after this procedure.
- After filling all things just scroll down and click on “Save Changes”.
- You’re now done. Pack your bags and leave your office without any tension.
