Send automatic replies from your Yahoo mail while on vacation

While on vacation, you can also take a break from email. Yahoo Mail can automatically reply to incoming emails, so the sender doesn’t expect a response right away.

The instructions in this article apply to web versions of Yahoo Mail. All steps should be the same regardless of your web browser.

Set up an autoresponder in Yahoo Mail

To have Yahoo Mail automatically reply to emails when you are out of the office:

  1. Select equipment in the top right corner of Yahoo Mail.

  2. Select Additional Settings in the menu that appears.

  3. Select Holiday response From the left.

  4. Select the radio button next to Record holiday response to enable it.

  5. Specify a start and end date for the automatic reply.

  6. Enter your autoresponder in the text field.

    Use the toolbar to apply text formatting to your automatic reply.

  7. To send an alternate message to senders who share a domain, scroll down and check the box Send different responses to specific domains and then enter the required information.
