    Gmail Vacation Responder makes it a breeze to setup vacation, away and out-of-office auto-responders on Gmail. Optionally configure multiple accounts and turn on (or off) or schedule the auto-responders for all accounts at once.

    Specify if an account is formal or informal to use different kinds of responses, depending on whether it is a personal account or a work-related account.

    Define placeholders such as your name, your contact phone and substitute these across all your message templates. You can change the phone number you want to be reached on without having to update each vacation responder individually.

    ★ Ideal for business use

    Need to let people know who else to contact while out of the office? Pick a colleague from your address book to automatically fill in placeholders substituting your colleague's name, email address and phone number.

    Gmail Vacation Responder comes with a number default leave types and messages:

    1. Vacation
    2. Away (out of the office)
    3. Travelling (not enabled by default)
    4. Sick (not enabled by default)

    While suitable default responses are provided you may edit and customize the templates yourself. You may also create leave types of your own.

    **** Without the unlock key this app runs in trial mode, which means you may test the full functionality but a short notice is appended as footer. If you like this app you may purchase and install a separate unlock key app that removes this notice. You get to keep all your current settings and message templates. ****

    ★ Other features

    - A drop down selector to quickly indicate if you have no or limited access to email while away.

    - Placeholders are optional; if undefined sentences may be removed from the message so it still makes sense when read. If no colleague is selected the entire "Please contact my colleague..." paragraph will automatically be removed from the template.

    - Create your own text or choice placeholders (see the help screen for instructions). For instance, if you're traveling to a particular destination and want to indicate this in your out of office message you may write: I'm traveling to {America|Asia|Europe} (use the vertical bar symbol) and then pick one of the three options in a drop-down.

    - You may choose if the auto-reply is to be sent to all senders or only to those in your contacts list.

    - If you have a Google Apps for Business account you may choose if the auto-reply is to be sent to senders from your own domain only.

    ★ Problems?

    If enabling your account or updating the vacation responders does not work make sure your Google account is in fact a Gmail account. Try to log into Gmail using a normal web browser from the device. If you've not recently accessed your account Google may show an intermediate "Confirm your account" page upon login, which you need to acknowledge before being able to use the app.

    If you have questions or problems please write to or use the contact form at before posting a negative comment.
