Vacation Auto-Replies (Macintosh)

Combining the Stationery and Filters features in Eudora, you can set up Eudora to auto-respond to a message with another message. These are commonly called Vacation Messages or Auto-Replies.

NOTE: Your computer must be turned on and Eudora must be running for the instructions to work. Eudora will not check and/or send mail if it's not running or if your computer is turned off.

Create the Stationery File

Step 1

Create a stationery file that says what you want the recipients to receive. In our example above, it's a brief message explaining that we are out of the office.

  • How to Create Stationery

  • Go to Windows: Filters to open the Filters window

    Step 2

    Go to the Window: menu and select Filters to open the Filters window.

    Create the filter using the settings depicted

    Step 3

    To add a new filter, click NEW. Under Match, click Incoming to put a checkmark in the box (you can also click Manual for testing purposes).

    In the Header field, select To: from the pop-up menu. In the pop-up menu below the Header field, change "contains" to "appears", and leave the box to the right of it empty.

    Under Actions, choose "Reply with" from the first pop-up menu. A box with a pop-up menu will appear to the right of "Reply with":. From the pop-up menu, choose the stationery you created above in Step 1. Close the Filters window and save your changes.

    NOTE: If you have existing filters, make sure that this Vacation Filter is the first filter at the top of the list. Either drag the Vacation Auto-Reply filter up to the top of the list and give it a second action of Skip Rest, or turn off the other filters by unchecking Incoming under Match.

  • How to Create Filters

  • Go to Special: Settings:

    Step 4

    Go to the Special: menu and select Settings to open the Settings window.

    Step 5

    Click on the Checking Mail category. Make sure you have Eudora set to check for mail at a specified interval (we recommend no less than 15 minutes). Just make sure that a non-zero number is in the box for that option.

    Next, make sure that Send on Check and Save Password are checked. Click OK to save your options. Make sure your computer is left on and is able to connect to your mail server.

    That's it. Your Vacation Auto-Reply Filter is finished.

    You can leave the filter in place when you do not need it. All you need to do to disable it is to uncheck all three Match checkboxes at the top of that filter (under Windows: Filters:).
