Before you hang up your mouse for the Christmas break, it’s a good idea to make sure that if anyone contacts you via email, they know whether you’re available and if not, when you’ll be back.
If you use MDaemon Messaging Server, rather than all staff replicating the same out of office autoresponder, you can use a simple temporary account and content filter rule to create a global version for all staff.
One of the particularly nice features in MDaemon is the ability to customise the flow of email through the use of its built in content filters.
In the past we’ve mainly focused on using the content filter in different ways to automate tasks, change message content and redirect mail to other locations.
In this article I’ll give you an overview of how you can make use of the content filter and MDaemon’s custom queues to intercept some or all outbound email, have a user check and authorise it manually, and then let it continue along its intended delivery path.
