The cPanel Autoresponder feature allows you to automatically send response messages if you are unavailable for any reason, such as on holiday. The emails will still reach your inbox, and you can deal with them at a later date.

Deleting an Autoresponder

You can remove an autoresponder when you no longer need to use it.
