Set up Auto Reply in Gmail
Question: How can I set up an automatic reply to a sender to say that I am away or on a vacation and cannot access my email.
Answer: (This solution is for Gmail users) Sign in to your Gmail account. Click on the ‘settings’ link located at the top right of the screen. In the ‘Generals’ tab, scroll down to the sub-heading ‘Vacation Responder’. Fill in the ‘Vacation Responder on’ box and then fill in the subject and message. (The message box is where you will type your message which will be sent as a auto reply) If you want to send an auto reply to your contacts, then tick the box which says ‘Only send a response to people in my Contacts’
