An auto-responder allows you to configure an immediate response to any incoming mail that is destined to a POP3 mailbox. This can be useful if are away for long periods of time, alerting your customers to the fact that you are unable to respond in a timely manner.
Once an auto-reponder is enabled it will respond only once every 24 hours to a sender, regardless of how many messages they send. This is to ensure that our systems don’t start an endless loop with a senders auto-responder, for example.
