Zimbra: Setting a Vacation Message

Zimbra: Setting a Vacation Message

July 14, 2011

This feature is also known as an out-of-office auto-reply message. You can set a vacation message that automatically replies to people who send you messages when you are out of the office for an extended period of time. That message is sent to each recipient only once, regardless of how many messages that person sends you during the designated vacation period.

  1. Go to the Zimbra page and log in with your full email address and password.

  2. Click the Preferences tab (near the top of the screen.)

  3. Click the Mail item in the list on the left (beneath General.)

  4. Scroll down below Receiving Messages and find Send auto-reply message. Click the check box.

  5. Enter your message text.

  6. Click the Start and End check boxes and edit the dates you need. Or leave them unchecked and vacation messages will begin when you Save, and stop when you return to this page and uncheck Send auto-reply.

  7. Finally, click Save (near the top of the window) to make it effective.
