Overview

Setup email autoresponders in Gmail and quickly reply to messages using pre-written email templates. Better than Canned Responses.
Would you like to auto-reply to emails in Gmail with intelligent responses? Canned Responses in Gmail help you quickly respond to incoming email messages using pre-written and formatted replies. You can save an email draft as a canned response in Gmail and the insert this response in your email replies with a few keystrokes thus saving lot of time.

Unfortunately, canned responses do not work on mobile phones as the feature is only available in the desktop website of Gmail. The other limitation is that you can send a canned response to multiple emails in one go, you'll have to respond to messages one by one manually.

The Email Autoresponder addon for Google Spreadsheets has no such limitations. Here's how the add-on works.

1. You create one or more draft messages in Gmail that will be used as auto-respones.
2. Open the Google Sheet, choose Add-on > Email Autoresponder > Create New rule. 

Here choose conditions like the Gmail label name, the subject line, the sender's email address, and the corresponding draft message. The add-on will automatically send an auto-response to all the matching email messages via your Gmail account. You can even send auto-responses from any Gmail alias as well.

You can use the Gmail autoresponder to quickly answer customer support emails, acknowledge sales enquiries, and more. The draft canned responses can include attachments and inline images as well.

The auto-responder for Gmail replies to the sender of email message using the reply-to address, the address where the sender prefers to receive the replies. This is similar to standard behavior in Gmail when you reply to an email message.

The new release of auto-responder lets you specify the start and end time when the program should run. This is helpful if you would only like to respond to emails during specific hours (like when you have left office for the day).

The recipients will never know whether you've typed the response or sent an automatic reply with the Gmail autoresponder.

The premium edition of the Gmail Autoresponder lets you create unlimited rules for auto-replying to email messages and have a higher mail sending limit. Please go to gum.co/GA04 to upgrade to premium.

If you are experiencing any problem or issues, go to the Add-on -> Email Autoresponder menu, and choose Restart Program. If that doesn't help, please send the Debug Logs to the developer.
