Create Autoresponders

How to create autoresponders in cPanel. You can use autoresponders 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.

On your cPanel main page, scroll down to the section named Email. Click on the icon marked Autoresponders. This will take you to the main autoresponder page. Click on the Add autoresponder 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 autoresponder 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 autoresponse 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 autoresponse 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 autoresponder has been successfully created. Click on the Go Back Link, and you will see your new autoresponder listed. Here you can edit it, or delete it completely. You can create additional autoresponders. 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 autoresponder 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.
