How to Set Up a No-Reply

By Juanita Williams

"Please do not reply to this email," is commonly seen among the many emails in your in-box. Companies use this method to decrease all the deluging emails they receive on a daily basis. It informs recipients that any messages sent to the said email address will not be received or monitored. In order to set up a, "Please Do Not Reply," email address, there are a few steps that you need to take.

Things You'll Need

  • Email account
  • Internet

Step 1

Go to Gmail, Yahoo, or AOL to sign up for a free email account. Click the "Sign up for a Free Account" button.

Step 2

Enter your personal information such as first name, last name, date of birth, desired password and the email address that you would like to have. For example, "pleasedonotreply@yourdomainname.com."

Step 3

Go to the settings tab located in your email account. Click on "Create filters." Set up your filter to delete incoming messages to the "Do Not Reply" account. You will need the incoming mail server settings for your Web mail provider.

Step 4

Open your email account and select "Compose." Compose a new email to your recipients by adding a subject in the "Subject" field. Inform recipients in the body of the message to not reply back to the email as it will not be received and is not monitored or both. Send the email and you are all set.

Tips & Warnings

  • Provide alternative contact information to your recipients to allow them to contact you when needed. Providing an alternate email address that will allow incoming messages and that is monitored would suffice.
