There may be times when you are not disposed to respond to emails sent to you due to one reason or another. Such times can be when you are on holiday or vacation when you are out of the office for some time and can’t access your mail or you are in a place with the poor network coverage. Yahoo can reply to your emails automatically when you are not available. This is done by using Yahoo auto-response email which is a brilliant feature provided by Yahoo. This feature enables you to manage your email effectively. It is very simple and easy to configure.
If you can’t rely on anyone to reply your messages, then turn to auto-response email. This ensures that you don’t keep people waiting and lets them know that you won’t respond until you are back. All you need to do is to set auto-replies to your mail and whenever you get a mail, the sender will receive an automatic reply. You can turn it off easily once you are available. It is very effective for office workers, business communications, and personal purposes.
