Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there a way i can use a rule or "timer" of some sort to turn on out of office, or enable an auto reply for 1 mailbox (Sales mailbox) within a time period.


We deal with all timezones, we only open 6am-8pm. critical sales are sometimes lost the automatic reply will involve a telephone number for emergency sales. (yes, spam i know)

I wish the auto reply to come from "Noreply@mydomain.com" if this is possible. I've lokekd at transport rules, cant see anything.

I cant word my question well enough for google to give an answer.

What's your mail server, and if it's an open-source one, what's your MDA (Mail Delivery Agent)? –  MadHatter Nov 7 '12 at 9:22
