How to create an automatic vacation email on

When you go on vacation, one of the habits you should have is to leave an automatic email message in your email to anyone who contacts you. This way, you ensure that people are aware that you are on vacation and more easily accept any possible delay in their responses. But the big question is: how to do this? If you use, like me, there is a very simple way to do this. Just follow the steps I explain in this article that your email will be triggered smoothly.

Step 1: Login to Your Account

The first step to successfully creating this automated email is… log in to your account! Go to and log in.

Step 2: Options

Now go to the upper right corner and click on the Options menu as shown in the image below:

Step 3: Automatic Answers

You will now be on a page with several options. Select the one that says “Sending automatic absence responses” as shown in the image below:

Step 4: Defining Your Answer

Now a box will appear for you to type your email address. In that same box, there are 2 points you should be careful about. The first is to leave the option that says "Send auto responders to people who email me" active. And the second point to be careful about is to enable the "Reply to your contacts only" option. See the image below how to do this:

Now, just click Save and you're done: the automatic message will start firing.

So, did you do it? If you have any questions leave it in the comments!
