Automatization of Hotmail mailing allows you to notify people who are in your contact list – or even those that have just sent you a letter – about certain events or facts.
If you are going to go on a trip, for instance, switching the feature of automatic replies on would be a great solution for you. All of the people who mail you would get to know that you are going to be unavailable for a certain period. And there many more ways of using this feature. But if you want to get to know how to take advantage of this feature, stick to the guidelines published below.
