  • From - name of the sender of the automatic message (this may be the email address of the account for which we are providing autoresponder),
  • Subject - subject of automatic response,
  • "This message contains HTML code" - check if the autoresponder message will contain HTML code,

  • Start - select from when the machine should work,
  • Stop - choose until when the machine is to operate.

When creating the content of the autoresponder, we can use the following tags to personalize the content that is being send back:

  • %subject% - Subject of the message that was sent to the autoresponder,
  • %from% - The name of the sender of the message received by the autoresponder, if available,
  • %email% - The incoming email sender’s address..
