Creating auto-responders on cPanel Email at Hostinger

Updated over a week ago

An automatic reply is a feature that sends pre-written responses to all incoming email messages. You can use it, for example, to acknowledge receipt of an email or to provide a fast reply while you are away.

How to Create an Automatic Reply

To create an automatic reply for your emails, access your cPanel and locate the Autoresponders menu:

The Autoresponders option on cPanel

Next, click on Add autoresponder. In the next section, set up the automatic message by filling in the following fields:

  1. Character set - unless you need a different character set, leave the default

  2. Interval - how long to wait before sending an automatic reply to the same email address

  3. Enter the email username to apply the autoresponder without the domain

  4. Selcet the domain from the drop-down list

  5. Enter a name to be shown in the From field of the message

  6. Compose a message subject for the automatic replies

  7. Compose the message that will be sent automatically. You can use rich or plain text

  8. Define when to start and end the automatic response

When all is good to go, click on Create. Once the automatic reply is set up, all the messages sent to the email address you specified will receive the automatic message within the scheduled timeframe.

How to Manage Automatic Replies

You can find the Current Autoresponders on the Autoresponders section:

The Current Autoresponders section in cPanel showing how to edit or delete an automatic reply

To update the message, subject or dates, select Edit, make the desired changes and click on Modify to apply them.

To remove the automatic reply, click on Delete. After deletion, automatic replies will no longer be sent after receiving new messages. If needed, you can re-create a deleted autoresponder at any time.

That's it! Now you know how to create and manage automatic replies for cPanel Email 📫
