I need to auto-respond to email but I only have a POP account (not Exchange

Server). I'm using Outlook 2003. Does ANYONE know how I can do this?

Thanks, Olaf

you need 3rd party software or service, google outlook or email autoresponder

How to emulate the Out of Office Assistant in Microsoft Outlook

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/311107

Means you have to:

- Leave your computer always powered on. Get a big UPS.

- Configure recovery options in Windows to reboot after a crash (so it

could just get stuck in a reboot loop if what caused it to crash keeps

making it crash).

- Use auto-login so Windows logins under your account after rebooting

from a crash. Also means anyone can use your computer.

- Leave Windows always loaded.

- Leave Outlook always loaded. This is client software and makes for a

flaky server program.

- Define the rule mentioned in the KB article.

- Only works for e-mails that get past your e-mail provider's anti-spam

filter (since those won't be available to Outlook).

Have you actually checked that your e-mail provider does not provide an

auto-responder so you can run this up on their server?

A rule can do this. See this:

Re: How do auto-response if I only have POP account (not Exchange

I can get Outlook to send an autoresponse for mails arriving at the default

POP3 account, but I have 4 accounts in Outlook and it won't autorespond to

the others. The settings window has an "Apply to all accounts" box but it's

greyed out. Any suggestions?

The most email providers support that feature server-sided. Login on

your email providers website and check up if this feature is being

offered.

Re: How do auto-response if I only have POP account (not Exchange

Yes, that was my first thought, but the ISP does not offer autoresponse

unfortunately. Very close in Outlook, but that "Apply to all accounts" box

being greyed out is a real bummer.....

Are your ISP and your email provider identical?

As far as I know this option is only available when you're in an

Exchange enviroment. Then you can enable the option to set the rule to

other existing accounts (POP3, IMAP etc.) as well.

But why do you want to enable the option? In a standalone installation,

rules do apply always for all existing accounts.

But if I understood correctly, you want to send an autosresponse only

for mails that has been received through your default email account. In

this case enable the option "Through the specific account" in the rule.

Re: How do auto-response if I only have POP account (not Exchange

Sorry, I meant "email service provider". Good news to hear that rules apply

to all accounts, maybe there are other settings within each account that I

need to rectify - will check now.

I want the response to go out from each account that receives mail.

Thanks for the help - and the very fast responses!

Do each of these mail accounts have its own maibox on the server? Do these

accounts all use the same mail server? Do they each have separate

usernames/passwords? Are they all included in the send/receive group?

Re: How do auto-response if I only have POP account (not Exchange

All accounts are with the same email provider but have their own domain names

(I mean the part after @) and each has its own mailbox addresses, username

and password.

They are all enabled in send/receive and all drop into the same inbox (ie

not separate profiles).

Odd. Then you should be able to create a rule that responds no matter what

account receives the mail.

Re: How do auto-response if I only have POP account (not Exchange

Hi Brian,

If I want to reply to emails from a specific account, does that account have

to be the default account? Thanks for your help.

Sincerely, David Druckerman
