Scheduling Autoresponder On/Off


I would love to be able to schedule my email autoresponder ahead of time for my regular days off.

I work weekends and take two weekdays off, which is something I have to be constantly reminding my patients.

Instead of having to login to Dreamhost at the end of a long day to turn on an autoresponder, if it worked, say, every Monday, that work would already be done for me.

Thanks for considering!


You could write a cron job to schedule the autoresponder script to start/end.

However, over the years I’ve come to feel that some functions are more efficiently accomplished manually. An added benefit to this is it keeps me connected to the operations side of web site management, otherwise I tend to forget just how everything fits together.
