Auto reply with Windows® Live Mail
E-mail is the method of exchanging digital messages from an author to one or more recipients through the Internet. E-mail servers accept, forward, deliver, and store messages. Windows Live Mail provides an option to send reply to e-mails automatically. Auto reply is a computer program that responds automatically to a received e-mail. It is considered to be an e-mail marketing tool that gives information to their proposed customers and reply them at preset time intervals. The auto responders can be either outsourced ASP model types or server side users. Outsourced ASP type responders operate on the provider’s infrastructure and are configurable through web-based control panel. They pay a fixed amount of usage fee. Server side users install the auto responder system on their own server and require technical skills. This is very useful when we are away from the computer. Through this facility, you can include automatic replies when you expect to be back and replying in person so that your contacts can adjust your action. The facility will automatically reply to the mails according to the configuration settings managed by user.
Some of the features of the auto reply facility in Windows Live Mail are listed below:
- Automatic Outgoing Mails are Fully Controlled
- Option to enable/disable E-mail Auto Reply
- Single Auto Reply for a Received E-mail
Automatic Outgoing Mails are fully Controlled
The 'Auto Reply Manager' in Windows Live Mail decides to whom you want to reply. That is, YOU can select the people to whom you actually want to receive automatic e-mail back from you. If you don’t want to respond to some people, you just need to block auto reply for them. Thus automatic outgoing messages can be fully controlled.
Option to enable/disable E-mail Auto Reply
Another important feature of automatic e-mail responder is that, you can enable or disable the feature easily. This allows you to enable the system only when you are away from your computer and will not be available. The 'Auto Reply Manager' will move the replied messages to a specific folder and mark it as replied mails.
Single Auto Reply for a Received E-mail
The auto replier has an inbuilt mechanism that allows you to decide to send a single automatic reply for a received mail. Even if you receive a number of mails from the contact, it sends only one reply that informs about your current situation. You also have the option to allocate specific time period.
