Is there a way to set up an auto-reply in Thunderbird email…

Is there a way...

Is there a way to set up an auto-reply in Thunderbird email or do I need to add an Autoresponder app?

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what email service provider are you using?

I'm running two desktop Macs, email on older unit, OS X Yosemite. ISP is Tri County Telecom, I think the web-based email server uses Zimba.

Technician's Assistant: Who is your email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.)?

Gotricoutny.com

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your email account? What troubleshooting have you tried?

First time I've tried to set up an auto reply. Have been with TriCounty for almost two decades (this is vey rural terrirtory).

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

No, that's pretty much all I need now.

Great question - and you're right to wonder. Thunderbird won't be able to set an autoresponder for you, at least not one that is reliable. Your best bet is to log into the email account using the web portal for whatever internet service provider you're using (I think there's a typo in your note above as gotricoutny.com doesn't go anywhere for me) for that email account and set it up there. Because thunderbird is local software on your PC, it will only function when your PC is on the internet and powered up.

Sorry for the typo. (I'm recovering from a stroke.)the provider url is gotricounty.com.

Not a problem at all - just wanted to make sure knew I was paying close attention. :)

You can login into your email for that provider here: https://myapplicationportal.com/?domain=gotricounty.com

There's also an online guide to using their webmail service here: http://guides.myonlinehelp.net/docs/gotricounty.com/zwebmail

Is that enough information to get you started? My goal is to provide you with excellent service and fully answer your question – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

If finished, please take a moment to accept this answer and rate my service. Thank you for your business!
