Autoresponders are used to automatically respond to an email that has been sent to the corresponding email address. Autoresponders are very useful for people who are going away for a long period of time and will not be able to answer emails.

An autoresponder can be set up to respond to incoming emails with any message specified by the user. For example, if an email is sent to name@domain.com and an autoresponder is in place, the sender would immediately get an email back with a customized message letting them know that they are out of town or away for the holiday weekend. All of your emails will still be waiting for you when you are available to check them.
