    Is there away in the Cpanel Email management to setup a vacation notice for a POP account, without having to delete the POP account, create a forwarding address, then recreate the POP after one returns from a "vacation". So basically when someone sends an email to a particular POP address it is automatically sent back to the sender informing them you are away ??

    TIA,
    Mickalo

    You can setup an autoresponder without having to delete the account.

    This will inform people that your away and the emails will still be waiting there for you when you get back :)

    So you can create an autoresponder with the same exact email address as the POP address and it will keep all incoming email in the POP inbox, but send a automated response back to the sender??

    Yes thats right m8

    You recieve the email as normal and they get an email back saying whatever you want it to :)

    e.g

    I am away on hols

    Ill be abck in 7 daysand will reply to your email then :)
