  2. Click on the Filters icon in the top bar.
  3. Click on Vacation from the list of filters.
  4. Enter the email addresses that when emailed will send out an auto-reply.
  5. Enter the subject of the auto-reply.
  6. Enter the message you wish to respond with.
  7. Click on Save, and then Return to Rules List.
  8. Activate the Vacation filter by clicking on the red “click to enable” link beside the Vacation rule.
  9. Finally, set a reminder in your favourite calendar program (eg. iCal) to turn off the auto-response after you have returned!
