My out of office auto responder is replying to spam emails. I’ve never had this issue before. Help! 0 Recommended Answers 23 Replies 55 Upvotes
As I always do before I go on vacation, I have set my out of office auto reply. Same setting as always - I don’t choose ‘just my contacts’ because I get new clients emailing me and don’t want to miss chances at new work. However in the Gmail guidelines it says that the out of office responder won’t respond to spam mail. Since I set this up yesterday - on two separate gmail accounts - lots of emails that have come into my spam folder have been replied to. Why is this happening? Is it a temporary glitch? It’s never happened before.
