Set start date on autoreply

It would be useful to be able to configure auto replies so that they start automatically on a specific date.

If I don't want to forget to set it before leaving.. or i'm sure there's many reasons!

        How come something so easy to implement and so useful for clients is still lacking in Plesk????

        Absolute lack of interest concerning client needs?

        DirectAdmin has got this functionality (START date and END date for auto reply) from ages ...
        And Plesk does not have it? I think it is shameful for you, Plesk developers.

        I need the Start Date. It is only logical to have it so that we can preset before the auto-reply is effective.

        When someone books their annual leave I could go straight in and schedule there auto reply to come on on X date and go off on Y date.

        When you have to manage different e-mails of colleagues out for vacations, it would be great to schedule the autoreply message with time. To do that the same day you or your colleague is leaving for vacations is not flexible...

        Thanks for adding the option to switch off the mail auto-reply feature on a specific date. It would be very helpful to be able to schedule a start date too.

        Please, it would be very convenient to set the start date to a specific date ... especially when you are running the autoreply function of 140 messaging. Thank you in advance !

        Setting a start date and time to auto reply as well as add a time to the date that the auto reply is removed.

        I think this feature is very useful for all Administrators. It should be possible to set the duration of the autoreply (start-time, end-time)

        Thnak you very much!

        Customer always ask a few days in advance to have autoreply enabled which means I have to set a reminder. The current expiration is pretty much useless as it never turns off when you expect.

        This would be a very simple feature to implement.
        - Select start date and time.
        - Select end date and time.

        This would be a great addition, you want an out of office reply over a holiday, but who wants to physically initiate the out of office reply when you want to be away from the office. +++ votes from me.

        Well - since there is a END DATE on autoreply now - it would make sense to also make START DATE configureable ...
        Hope to see this (small) Feature in upcoming release!
