How to Create an Auto Responder

This tutorial will teach you how to create an auto responder. You can use auto responders to send a message back automatically to anyone who sends an email to a certain account. This tutorial will assume that you are logged into your cPanel. If you are having trouble doing that, please see the tutorial named "How to Login to cPanel".

On your cPanel main page, scroll down to the section named Mail. Click on the icon marked Auto Responders. This will take you to the main auto responder page. Click on the Add auto responder link.

In the blank box marked email, enter the name of the account to which you are adding the AutoResponder. CAUTION: If you have more than one domain, such as a parked domain, make sure you are setting up the auto responder in the correct domain.

On the from line, enter the name you would like to have appear on the auto message email. The subject line is the subject of the auto response email. You may enter a subject, or just leave the default setting.

The next option is character set, which should be left at default, or possibly choose ASCII for most normal purposes.

By default, the message will be in plain text. You have the option of sending it in HTML by checking the box marked "This message contains HTML".

Enter the text of your auto response in the body box, and when you are done click on the create/modify button.

This will take you to a screen that shows you that your auto responder has been successfully created. Click on the Go Back Link, and you will see your new auto responder listed. Here you can edit it, or delete it completely. You can create additional auto responders. Click the HOME link in the upper left corner to return to the cPanel main page.

This ends the tutorial. You now know how to create an auto responder in cPanel. You can now exit cPanel by closing your browser, or by using the Logout button in the upper right corner. Remember, if you are using a public computer, ALWAYS Logout of cPanel before closing due to security reasons.
