How do I set up an away message in AOL Mail?

Going on vacation? Let your friends and family know by setting up an away message, that will auto-reply to mail that you receive while you're away.

To set up an away message:

1. In the upper right, above your mailbox, click Options and then click Mail Settings.

2. In the left panel, click General.


3. In the "Mail Away Message" section, click the No mail away message drop-down arrow and click either I am unavailable, I am away until..., or Custom. If you select Custom, you can type your own personal away message in the text box provided.


4. At the bottom of the page, click Save Settings.

All done! You'll need to remove your away message when you return. Don't forget the sunscreen!
