I need to set up a scheduled vacation responder so that colleagues who are on email 24/7 don't forget that I am unavailable for rapid email replies for 3 particular half-days per week. It's getting to be a huge problem, they just can't remember my schedule.
- I am on an active nationwide professional listserv whose admins really hate spam and I don't want these folks to get spammed by my away message.
- Unfortunately setting it to auto-reply to people only in my domain won't work, because a lot of the people firing off a 20-email thread aren't in my gmail domain.
- I also don't want to auto-reply to departmental announcements, because that will be so irritating to our admin week after week.
- So I want to specify that if it's a bcc list email, I don't want to reply to that, either.
Help will be so, so appreciated. I am in healthcare and Covid has ruined my workflow.
