What is an Auto Responder?

An auto responder is an automated reply to an incoming e-mail.  Thus, if you configure an auto responder on, say, your sales mailbox it might say something like "Thanks for contacting our sales department. Someone will contact you shortly" and then this reply would go out any time someone sent an e-mail to your sales mailbox.  

An auto responder could also be used as a temporary "I'm out of the office" message as well.
