Ability to add sheduled/recurring auto responders

I would like to be able to add sheduled auto responders that turn on and off automatically every week/month on specific days and times. Useful for businesses that are only open on certain days of the week and would like a message to be sent back to anyone that emails when the office is closed.

I understand that this can be done using a custom script and crontab, but would be good for the customer to be able to control this themselves from within cPanel.

I need the same feature as well.

I want to be able to set up auto responders only during weekends and out of office hours for the support emails.

The current system does not allow such granularity.

I am just looking for the same thing. Clients keep mailing me on the weekend, which is annoying and I want them to know this :-)

An auto responder would be the best way to stop this behaviour.

Several staff have now asked for this - would be really useful

I suggest that it should also be applied for "Schedule Forwarding", inside their own section at cpanel.

Both should have an option to check or uncheck "Email Notification" in order to let the email user be aware of the period covered and also an email when it's automatically deactivated at the end of the period.

This would be greatly appreciated. Some customers have staff who only work specific days and some would like an autoresponder to go out every weekend. Being able to schedule these rather than having to manually enable them each time would be a massive time saver.

Hi! This feature would be very great. Especially for part time workers. A guy at my work has had a child & works a 4 day week with Fridays off & it would be very helpful for me not to have to setup a forward every week.

Cheers!
