Auto Response

The Auto-Response setting can be used to configure automatic reply templates based on the sender's type in the groups. The types of senders are listed under the Send to section. You can set up Auto-Response based on the following type of senders:

  • Organization members part of the group - These are the members who are part of the organization and the group to which the email is received.
  • Organization members outside of the group - These are the members who are part of the organization but not a member of the group.
  • External members part of the group - These are the members who are not a member inside the organization but a part of the group.
  • External members outside of the group - These are the members who are not a member of the organization as well as the group.

The Template Status section will indicate whether or not the auto-response template has been configured. If the template is not configured, click on Add given to the right of each sender type. In the compose window provide the response template for the chosen type of sender. You can make use of the formating tools given on top of the compose window. Click Add to save the auto-response template.

Failure Threshold

You can set a failure threshold for failed email deliveries to the group members. If an email from the group to a group member does not get delivered and gets bounced back continuously and crosses the set threshold, any future emails to that member will automatically be skipped. If the email is successfully delivered after a few failed deliveries, provided the count is less than that of the threshold value, the failure count automatically resets itself to 0. You can set a failure threshold value between 10-100

For example, consider a group named Zylker Marketing and rebecca@zylker.com is a group member. Let's say you set the failure threshold to 10. If the emails addressed to Rebecca from the group gets continuously bounced back and crosses 10, any emails sent from the group to Rebecca in the future will automatically be skipped. 

failure threshold

You can see the failure count of each member in the final column of the Members section. The admins and the moderators can choose to reset the failure count of any member.
