Step 4.

Click "Auto-Responder".

Select the "Options" tab if it is not already selected.


Step 6.

Check the box next to "Enable auto-responder".


Step 7.

Check or uncheck the other boxes according to how you want the auto-responder to behave. "Disable responses to indirect mail" will prevent the auto-responder from responding to email not directly addressed to you (for example, an email you get because you are listed in the CC: field). "Limit responses to once daily" will prevent the same sender from being sent an auto-response more than once a day.
