Manage your absences with complete peace of mind with Gmail's automatic response

Whether you are going on vacation or away for work, it is important to keep your contacts informed of your unavailability. With Gmail's auto-reply, you can send a pre-scheduled message to your correspondents to let them know you're away. Follow these simple steps to set up this feature:

Enable Auto Reply in Gmail

  1. Log in to your Gmail account and click on the gear icon located at the top right to access the settings.
  2. Select “See all settings” from the drop-down menu.
  3. Go to the “General” tab and scroll down to the “Auto Reply” section.
  4. Check the box “Enable auto-reply” to enable the feature.
  5. Set the start and end dates of your absence. Gmail will automatically send replies during this time.
  6. Write the subject and the message you want to send as an automatic reply. Do not forget to mention the duration of your absence and, if necessary, an alternative contact for urgent questions.
  7. You can choose to send the automatic reply only to your contacts or to everyone who emails you.
  8. Click “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page to validate your settings.

Once you've set up auto-reply, your contacts will receive an email letting them know you're away as soon as they message you. So you can enjoy your vacation or focus on your important tasks without worrying about missing important emails.
