E-mail Autoresponders

What is an e-mail auto responder?

An e-mail auto responder is a special type of e-mail account which simply responds to all incoming e-mail with a predetermined message.

What is the difference between POP3 e-mail account and an e-mail auto responder?

A POP3 e-mail account is a special kind of e-mail account that comes with a login and password. A POP3 account allows the user to send and receive new messages from this e-mail address. An e-mail auto responder does none of the above, and only responds to all incoming e-mail with a predetermined message.

What is the difference between an e-mail forwarder and an e-mail auto responder?

An e-mail forwarder is a special type of e-mail account which simply forwards all e-mail sent to a particular e-mail address @yourdomain.com to a specific POP3 e-mail account. An e-mail auto responder does not have a forwarding function, but instead grabs the sender's e-mail address on all incoming e-mail and automatically responds to the e-mail with a predetermined message.

Can an e-mail auto responder also be a POP3 e-mail account?

Yes, and this is a good idea. Having an e-mail auto responder setup as a POP3 account as well will ensure that e-mail sent to this particular e-mail address will be received. When e-mail is sent, the sender will automatically receive your predetermined response (from the auto responder) and his/her message will be delivered to your POP3 e-mail account.

Can an e-mail auto responder also be an e-mail forwarder?

Yes. You can setup a particular e-mail address to act both as an e-mail auto responder as well as an e-mail forwarder. This is a good idea since e-mail sent to this particular e-mail address will both have an auto response message as well as being delivered to you. When e-mail is sent to this particular e-mail address, the message will be forwarded to the specified mail forwarding address. At the same time, the sender of the incoming e-mail message will automatically receive an auto response.

Can an e-mail auto responder also be an e-mail forwarder and a POP3 e-mail account?

Yes. You can have a particular e-mail address setup to be an e-mail auto responder, an e-mail forwarder, and a POP3 account as well. Here is what will happen under these circumstances:

  1. The sender of any incoming e-mail will automatically receive a predetermined message (the auto responder).
  2. One copy of the e-mail message will be forwarded to the specified forwarding address (the forwarder).
  3. Another copy of the same e-mail message will be delivered to the e-mail address (the POP3 account).

How do I edit or remove existing e-mail auto responders?

This is done easily through your Control Panel. Simply log into your Control Panel, then select "Responders" from the menu on the left, then click on the edit or delete icon to the right of the responder you wish to manage.

Am I allowed to sell my e-mail auto responders to others?
