Gmail provides a number of features to help customers utilize the service more efficiently, both on computers and on mobile devices. One of these options lets us set up an automatic response with a personalized message to respond to communications from our contacts right away.
This feature comes in handy when we need to organize ourselves at a certain time and don’t want to leave someone waiting. For instance, whether going on vacation, applying for a driver’s license, traveling a location without coverage, or simply notifying that we will no longer be using our existing email address.
