An autoresponder replies automatically when a specific email address receives an email.
This is great to use when notifying customers you have received their email and they will get a response in a pre-determined time frame.
Step 1: Open your cPanel account
Open your cPanel account . e.g. ‘www.example.com/cpanel’ where ‘example.com’ is the primary domain name associated with your hosting account. Then, enter your login details and click ‘Log In’ to proceed.
Step 2: Go to autoresponders from the Email section
In your cPanel dashboard, navigate to the ‘EMAIL’ category and click ‘Autoresponders’.

Next, select the domain name under which you want to create an email autoresponder for .Then click the ‘Add Autoresponder’ button:
On the next screen, enter your customization details. First filed Character Set’s value set by default is “utf-8”
you don’t need to change it. Then Enter the number of hours to wait between responses to the same email address . Input the first

On the ‘From’ field, enter a name (e.g. tech Department) then enter a subject of the email. In this case, I have used AUTO RESPONSE for demo purposes. You can change it as per your requirement for your business.
