Please follow these instructions to set up a vacation message, allowing you to let people know the exact period you will be away and possibly unreachable. This is the difference between an AUTO RESPONDER and a VACATION MESSAGE, seeing that the latter offers the option to add a starting time and an end time, where as the auto-responder does not.
