Vacation Message for Shared Folder

How to set up automatic replies to shared e-mail addresses

While the setup of automatic replies to personal accounts is done via web, vacation messages of shared folders are managed via e-mail.


To activate an autoreply, send the message you want to be installed as e-mail
From: shared_e-mail_address
To: autoresponse+shared_e-mail_address
for example:
from to
from to
from to
Note: Both the message content and the subject of your message will be used for the automatic reply.
Verify that it's working correctly by sending a test message from your personal account.


Just send another message from and to as above. The content does not matter, but it should not be empty because otherwise the message might get caught by the spam filter.
Again, verify that deactivation was successful.
