Configuring Exchange auto-reply settings


 

This feature allows you to configure automatic replies for the emails sent to your users' Exchange mailboxes. With purely GUI-based actions, you can:


- Enable/ disable automatic replies to senders from your organization.
- Enable/ disable automatic replies to senders from other organizations.
- Send different replies to senders from your organization and to those from other organizations.
- Specify the time period during which automatic replies must be sent.

 

 

 

Steps:

  1. Click the AD Mgmt tab.

  2. Select User Management in the left pane. Then click the auto reply link under Exchange tasks.

  3. Use the Select Domain option to choose the domain in which the users for whom you wish to configure auto-reply settings are located.

  4. Click the Action button.

  5. Select the send automatic replies option. In the text box, type the content that you want to be sent as the reply to the senders from your organization.

  6. Select the enable reply to outside the organization option if you want automatic replies to be sent to the senders from other organizations as well. In the text box, type the content that you want to be sent as the reply to the senders who do not belong to your organization.

  7. Select the send replies only during this time period option if you want to specify a particular time frame only during which the automatic replies should be sent. In the start time and end time fields, select the date and time between which the replies will be sent.

  8. From the user list, select the users for whom auto reply settings should be configured. Alternatively, you can use the Import CSV option to specify the users via a CSV file. If you want to select all the users in the list displayed, just select the check box at the left of Display Name.

  9. Click the Apply button to apply these settings to the selected users.
