How to Add An Out Of Office to Your Email

If you are away from the Office, perhaps on holiday, you may want to set an Out of Office message on your email account. These are also called Autoresponders.

There are many ways of doing this either in your email client like Outlook or Webmail. This article shows you how to set this directly on the email server.

1. Access the hosting control panel. Login to and click on your hosting plan where your email account is located.

2. Once in the hosting control panel click on the 'Accounts' under 'POP/IMAP Email'.

3. Click on your email address.

4. Scroll down to the 'Autoresponder' section. Check the 'Autoresponder Enabled' checkbox and complete the Subject and Message fields. It is a good idea to use the 'Autoresponder Expires' function so that you don't forget to turn it off. Make sure your click the 'Save' button to save your Autoresponder settings.
