    Auto/Vacation E-Mail Replies?

    Advertisement



    Hi,


    Is there a way I can setup auto/vacation replies on my BlackBerry, so that a "canned" (pre-written) reply is bounced back to any incoming e-mail messages?

    I searched the forums, to no avail...

    If your on a BES, yes you can, just use out of office assistant.

    If your not on a BES, then I don't think so, at least not natively on the blackberry.
    it's always greener with the other carrier...

    Ya with BIS, I don't think so. Well not without 3rd party apps, and I dont know of any that do this.

    CDMA was never very big on a global scale, especially in comparison to the GSM, which is the network technology in use in most countries...

    To add more fuel to the fire, most countries have either ditched CDMA, or are in the process of doing so.

    It sounds harsh, but the simple fact is, CDMA is a niche type of network that was poorly implemented globally (even though at the time it was technically superior to the GSM), and software developers simply aren't going to create software for a niche market that is on its way out anyway!

    And that's BEFORE the technical differences between the GSM and CDMA are introduced...

    Once 3G/UMTS networks take off there though, this problem should (mostly) vanish, with software more generically becomming available.

    Yeah, you have a point, somewhat - the States is one of the few places still using CDMA, but then CDMA was never really designed for roaming, so as long as you don't go overseas, it's not really a problem.

    It will be interesting to see whether they (your networks) it, or switch to newer 3G technologies that offer similar coverage, seeing that at least one major carrier has commited to making it available this year...

    But there's a seperate thread here discussing 3G and the related technologies, so I'll leave my comments at that.

    Do you have a third party email provider or host, or just a @blackberry address?

    If you have a host, like GoDaddy or Fusemail, you can set up vacation messages easily. And if your trip is relatively short, you can set up a trial account with many hosts for free.

    Yeah, that's a bummer and I didn't know that the SMS responder didn't work for CDMA devices.

    CybaCowboy was looking for just an email responder so it should still work for him though.

    I had a previous version (didn't support multiple email addresses at the time, just all addresses) and I was happy with it then; but didn't really use it that much so I uninstalled it (but still have it for when I might reinstall it again).

    You could go to your carrier's BIS website, edit the email account and add something in the signature.
