I'm going on a vacation for a few weeks, and I'd like to know if there's an option to set an auto reply on Gmail.

Thank you.

Setting an automatic vacation response
Going on vacation? No access to the Internet? No problem! Use Gmail's vacation responder to let people know you won't be able to get back to them right away. You can set up a vacation response in your Gmail settings that will automatically reply to anyone who emails you. While the vacation responder is enabled, Gmail will send a response to anyone who contacts you.* If that person contacts you again after four days and your vacation responder is still enabled, Gmail will send another vacation response to remind the person that you're away from your email.
Here's how to let people know you can't respond right away:
  1. Sign in to Gmail.
  2. Click Settings along the top of any Gmail page.
  3. From the General tab, select Vacation responder on in the Vacation responder: section.
  4. Enter the subject and body of your message in the Subject: and Message: fields.
    • If you've enabled a personalized signature in your settings, Gmail will automatically append it to the bottom of your vacation response.
  5. Check the box next to Only send a response to people in my Contacts if you don't want everyone who emails you to know that you're away from your mail.
  6. Click Save Changes.
While the vacation responder is enabled, you'll see a banner across the top of any Gmail page, displaying the subject of your vacation response. To stop Gmail from automatically sending the response, click end now within the banner. Or, if you'd like to edit the response, click vacation settings.
  • Keep in mind that your vacation response will start over each time you edit it -- if someone receives your initial vacation response, and then emails you again after you've edited the subject or body of the message, he or she will receive the edited response, too.
* Messages classified as spam and messages addressed to a mailing list you subscribe to will not receive a vacation response.

How will you let me know why I do not receive emails when people hit reply

Usually, the "Reply" button or command does not actually send a reply. Instead it merely opens up an editor of some type that lets the user compose a reply. Nothing is actually sent until the user invokes "Send."

Try it yourself. Send yourself an email, then reply to it.

My gmail account has been hacked and the guy using it has set up a reply-to using a ymail account that I don't recognize: I tried entering it in your system and it says this ymail...


Sorry to hear that.

Go to Mail Settings --> Accounts and Import tab --> Send Mail As

1. In this section you should be able to notice the "" being setup as a Reply-to address. Just click on "Edit Info" link besides your email Account. Remove the YMAIL account from the textbox and click on "Next Step". Let "Send through Gmail" remain selected and click on "Save Changes". This should remove the YMAIL address.

AND you should do the following too (if you have not intentionally tweaked with this setting):

In the same "Send Mail As" area, choose - Always reply from default address (currently )

This should solve the Reply-To problem.

However, here are additional suggestions that you should consider implementing after the above -

1. Change your gmail password immediately at

2. Use the Gmail Security Checklist to provide you pointers on what could have gone wrong.

3. If you think that you are an advanced user, consider using the Gmail 2-step-verification for adding additional security to your account. Set up page here:

Hope this was helpful. Pls. vote if it solves your problem.

On my Gmail inbox when I receive an email I cannot reply to it because there is no ''reply '' on the page. There is '' compose'', ''send'' and lots of other options but no''reply''

There is an arrow with a dropbox at both the top right and bottom of the email with options like reply and foward. Hope this helps

One question

If the person who replies uses the "Reply to All" option, yes, it'll go to everyone.

The "reply" option will only go back to the person who sent the e-mail.
