How to Send Automatic Outgoing Emails

How to Send Automatic Outgoing Emails. Sending automatic outgoing emails can be one of the best things you can learn. With these emails you can let your family and friends know when you are going to be away or just too busy to respond to your email for a period of time. The steps below will help you set up automatic responses to your emails when you are not available.

Step

Find options in your email. In Comcast, it is under "Preferences". In Netscape it is under "Options". You can search in your help to find where it is in your email provider.

Step

Select "Auto reply" or "Auto response" or whatever your email provider calls it.

Step

Check "Yes" or "Turn on" to enable the automatic emails.

Step

Fill in the dates you want the automatic email to be activated. In some programs you just turn it on and then turn it off when you are back. In others you have to enter the dates you want it to be in effect.

Step

Specify a subject. Some emails automatically assign a subject but in others you need to fill in a subject yourself.

Step

Type a message in the box that you want people to see. You want the message to say something like this, "I will be unavailable from Monday through Wednesday." You may also need to select where you want your mail saved; usually this would be your inbox.

Step

Choose "Update" or "Save" or the box that your email provider needs you to check in order to activate your automatic outgoing email.
