Sending mail notifications during an extended absence
When you plan to be away from your mailbox (for a business
trip or vacation for example),
you can send automatic responses to mail you receive with
a notification message that you specify.
If your system uses
as a mail router,
extended absence notification is not available and the
Extended Absence item does not appear on the
Mail Preferences menu.
To respond to mail with an extended absence notification:
Select Extended Absence from the Preferences menu.
Select Notices On to start sending notifications.
If you have a user nickname or any other account names
for which you receive mail, click on Add
under Other mail addresses for username.
Enter the account address(es).
Under Notification Message
type the text of the message you want to send.
While you are gone, Mail sends one notification to each
user who sends you mail. That user's address is added to
the ``Notices Were Sent To'' list.
Anyone on this list will not receive future notifications,
so when you return from your absence, you should empty
this list by selecting Clear.
When you return from your absence,
a reminder displays when you start Mail, telling you that
automatic notifications are being sent.
To stop the automatic notifications,
select Extended Absence from the Preferences menu,
then select Notices Off to end notifications.
Examine the Notices Sent To list and,
when you are finished with the list, select Clear.
