"Vacation" autoresponse (using webmail)

Recommended Posts

I have a paid Spamcop account and have for years. In recent years, I've gotten quite hooked on the Spamcop webmail system (I used to read all my mail on my own server, using PINE).

The thing is, with a *nix system, I know how to set up a little "vacation" scri_pt that will notify people when I've gone away for a few days. I have no idea how to do it on Spamcop's webmail system, or if it's even possible.

I'm not planning on going away any time soon, but I just wanted to ask for future reference, is there a way to set up an autoresponder thingy to let people know I'm AFK for a few days (and yes, I do get mail from people who are impatient sometimes; I try to let them know ahead of time that I'll be going, but sometimes I forget or miss someone).

Any suggestions? If it's not do-able, I can live with it. I just thought I'd ask.

Right now, all auto-responders or Out Of Office messages are not looked upon highly because of the number of forged senders being used. That being said, I do not believe SpamCop has an OOO function.

Right. Misdirected auto-responses are now considered abusive and reportable by SpamCop per the "Messages which may be reported" section of "On what type of email should I (not) use SpamCop?" at http://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/14.html and the "Traditional auto-responders" section of "Why are auto-responders (and delayed bounces) bad?" at http://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/329.html#responder.
