How to enable auto-reply messages for an e-mail account in Plesk

This article describes how to enable auto-reply messages for an e-mail account in Plesk. You may want to do this, for example, if a user is out of the office or temporarily unavailable to respond to e-mail messages.

Plesk is no longer included with new A2 Hosting plans, but it is still available on legacy Managed WordPress accounts. You can install Plesk manually on unmanaged VPS and Dedicated servers.
