I just done this but what conditions do I want as when I applied the rule I started getting reply's bouncing back here there and everywhere?? It sent emails to loads of people???You have to create an autoreply Rule - there isn't an easy option to turn on/off like there is in Outlook.
Are you using iClould? You can setup a vacation message in this screen from Mail settings at icloud.com.Can I do an automatic reply like I could on Outlook 'out of office will return.........'?
I'm not using icloud no.Are you using iClould? You can setup a vacation message in this screen from Mail settings at icloud.com.
If you don't use iCloud maybe you can forward your Mail to iCloud and use this feature. This would be better than a Mail app rule because it would work even with your computer off/offline.
for most email providers, you can easily do this from the web. login to your email online, and there's generally a place to set a 'vacation' email...I'm not using icloud no.
I would have thought there would be an option for only new messages received but there is not that I can see.
really? can you please post a screenshot? i cant find anything like this in ML mailI found the out of office tab in Mac Mail on 10.8 (ML) by right clicking on the "Inbox" selecting "Get Account Info" and the "Out of Office" reply is the second tab along. No need to setup rules etc.
This.If you use rules in Mail itself you need to run Mail 24/7 for it to work. Best way is to set it serverside (most will allow you to do this via webmail, rules set there are serverside).
I just checked and that setting is not there in Mail for an iCloud account. Given iCloud.com does allow a vacation message to be set, it would be nice if Apple added this in Mail app since it can be done with an Exchange account.
thanks a lot for the screenshot. though i dont see it in my settings although we have a web based auto-reply function.
In your case that would be Exchange (which also allows to set an internal (everybody in your company) and/or an external (everybody not from your company such as clients) out of office reply).
