PLUSMAIL Web Control: Autoresponders

An autoresponder is a pre-determined message with information you want automatically sent to anyone who emails a designated email address/alias (not a pop account) at your domain. When an email is sent to a mailbox that you have assigned an autorespond message to, the autoresponder automatically sends a reply. You can easily create an autoresponder with the WebControl System provided with your domain.

To set-up an autoresponder:

  • Put the email address you would like to have an autoresponder come from in the "Email Address" field.
  • Create the message you would like people to receive when they email you.
  • Click "Add Autoresponder". You can always edit, view, or delete them later.
  • Send an email to that address to make sure it works!

How do I see who is using my infobots?

Assume your autoresponder address is info@example.com.
Just put the following line in your email forwarding entries.

info example@example.com

The original email message will be sent to you at example@example.com, and the
original sender will get the infobot text.

Important Notes:

Please be sure to setup the autoresponder before doing the email forwarding entry or the infobot will not work.

At this time, if you do not have a default entry in your email forwarding, the autoresponder sends out the message as "Nobody"
