Safe List - Auto Replies to Non-Safe List Messages

I would like to set up an auto reply that would be sent to messages coming from senders not on my safe list letting them know the message will not get through. That way, if they are someone I forgot to add, they can text or call and get added. Is there a way to do that?

No.  The outgoing vacation response does not have the ability to be selective.  In fact, testing it I find that even addresses on the Safe List will also get the vacation message.  There is no way to break them out for separate treatment.

Thank you. I really appreciate you taking time to reply and even test it.

Not a problem.  It's how I learn stuff I don't have the answer for.  It forces me to research it and find the answer.  The new email format is still a work in progress, and questions like yours drive the work of finding out what we don't know yet.
