How to Manage Email Auto responders in cPanel

Email Autoresponder is a weird useful feature, especially when the recipient is not available. According to your choice you can either add, remove and edit an auto responder. All major email services like Gmail, Yahoo and Windows Live allow this feature and so you can have it on your own domain too, as Webmail in cPanel also offers the same.

In the cPanel interface you are allowed to delete, edit and view the auto responders from the table. If you enter a particular keyword in the search then the relevant email addresses will be viewed.
