Out of Office autoresponder?

Out of Office autoresponder?

Is there a way to set an "Out of Office" autoresponder on my e-mail?


I am going out of town to a place that has VERY limited to no WiFi and I want to let my contacts know.

If you have the new "Appsuite" webmail ("connect.xfinity.com/appsuite/..."), see

    (gear icon) / Settings / Mail / Auto Reply

Check "Reply automatically to incoming email" and enter your message text.

I'm sure it's right in front of my face but, looking around in Settings, I cannot find Mail.

I have:

That sounds like you are logging in to My Account. Whether you have Comcast's older "Zimbra" webmail ("web.mail.comcast.net/zimbra/...") or the new "Appsuite" webmail ("connect.xfinity.com/appsuite/..."), the Auto Reply setting is in the email Preferences or Settings pages, not the My Account pages.


The Auto Reply setting was moved from My Account to Email several years ago.
