You will have to set an automatic email response on your device to make it easy for your clients and customers. Know how to set it for your SBCGlobal email on your iPhone.
With holidays season going on at its full flow, the most important thing for businessmen is to make sure that they don’t leave their clients and/or customers guessing as to where the person has gone.
It is obvious that holidays season calls for some time off work, but those who are indulged in businesses need to inform the same to their clients and customers so that they know the person is not available and will return after the holidays.
If you want to set an automatic response to the emails you receive on your iPhone during your vacation, then that is possible by tweaking certain settings on your iPhone.
Do you plan to leave during your leave in a couple of days? Then, you can sign out completely by setting an automatic response to the emails you receive on your iPhone.
Provided you have a compatible email account (iCloud, account set up with Microsoft Exchange servers), an option is available directly in the configuration options of your email account.
If you are using a business class email, let’s say SBCGlobal email, then here’s how to set up an automatic reply message on iPhone or iPad.
- Open the Settings
Go to iOS Settings, then in Accounts & Passwords, navigate to the SBCGlobal email account in order to set up an auto-reply message.
- Enable automatic response
At the bottom of your SBCGlobal email settings, enter the Auto Answer menu and activate the Auto Answer feature.
- Set the duration
Right after you save ‘Auto Answer’ settings, you will see automatic response getting started up. If you want to set an end date as well on which you would like to see the automatic response getting to an end, then you can do that in your iOS device.
You need to go into ‘End Date’ menu followed by setting a date that you would like to be the last date for automatic response functionality to end.
In the end, you need to enter a message in the field named “Absence message”. This message would be the one that you want to send automatically to all the people who are going to contact you during your absence. Confirm it by pressing ‘Save’.
With that, you are all set to leave for holidays. Isn’t that easy? I believe it is, but I’m sure many would find difficulties setting up automatic replies on their SBCGlobal email account. So, what they can do is, they can get in touch with SBCGlobal email help and support facility to find the right way of setting automatic replies, which can be sent right after an email enters the inbox.
