Why would I need to use the Bigfoot Auto-Responder?

Often, users find themselves taking some time off and find that when they return to normal existence, their mailbox is overflowing with messages asking why they haven't been responded to. Enter the Bigfoot Auto-Responder. By defining a general message that can be sent to everyone who writes to your Bigfoot for Life address, you can cut down on repeat messages dramatically. You can even use it as a courtesy note to let people mailing you know that you've received their mail and will get back to them ASAP. Think of it as voicemail for your email!

From our homepage, click on Email Forwarding. Enter your Bigfoot email address and your Bigfoot password. On the next screen are all the services to which you, as a Bigfoot for Life member, have access. Under Premium Services, click on Bigfoot Auto-Responder to continue.

Next, click on the check box that indicates that you want to create an auto-response. In the field provided, type the message that you want to send out to anyone that sends an email to your Bigfoot for Life address. When you're satisfied with what you have, just click on the button marked UPDATE... to activate the Auto-Responder.

How do I turn off or edit the Auto-Responder?
