The season of vacation is knocking at the door! You must have some plans for this season of celebration. And vacation auto-reply is the thing you just need at this very moment. When you are taking a break from your work, the vacation auto-reply will send you the response to the sender explaining the reason for not any manual response. Now here are the steps to set up a vacation auto-reply in the Yahoo email.

  1. Log in to your Yahoo account

You must check the box next to Different response to emails from a specific domain and then enter the domain from under the First Domain tab for which the sender will get the alternative auto-reply. If you want to send the auto response to be sent from the emails of all the employees of the company then enter the ‘’ including the quotation mark.
