    I'm going to put an ad in a paper and I need to leave an email address that will send a fairly lengthy auto reply. I won't leave my computer on 24/7 so it's going to have to be from a service like Yahoo but Yahoo themselves only give you 10 lines. Hotmail doesn't have such a thing at all.

    Any suggestions here?


    Thanks!

    I did a quick Google search for "email auto reply", and came up with a few things, but nothing on the web that appears to be free.
    There is a service that will do it for $11.50 a month:
    IS&C
    If you're using Outlook 2000, you can download the trial version of ReplyMate
    Otherwise, it looks like the cheapest way to go would be to use Eudora 5.2 , set up another email account, and create a mail filter for auto-reply. Of course, this would require you leave the computer on.

    Sorry I couldn't find more for you.
    If you find another solution, I'd be interested in knowing about it.

    Jeff, thanks a lot! If I could find a service that has a yearly rate, I'd do it. Anyway I'll check out what you found and I'll keep looking myself.

    Jeff,
    What sort of ISP do you have? If your ISP allows you to enter a vacation message (most that are running on UNIX platforms do), then you might be all set.
