Use Outlook As an Autoresponder

Use Outlook As an Autoresponder

I was trying to think of a quick and easy way to get a bonus to people in return for them providing a review on one of my websites.

I didn’t want to have to setup landing pages and thank you pages and all the rest because I already have them on my database list.

Auntie Google to the rescue.

Very clear step-by-step instructions on how to set Outlook up to automatically deliver a message (and in my case an attachment) to people who send and email to a specific email address. I used a subject line based rule, tested it and it seems to work perfectly.

Here’s what I did.

1. set up an email in my autoresponder to send people to the website to volunteer their review

2. when done, they are instructed to send me an email with DONE in the subject line

3. my outlook will receive that email and process it by setting up an automatic response with the attached bonus document and sends to the recipient.

All thanks to (a) thinking there had to be a quick and easy way, and (b) the instructions from Productivity Portfolio – thanks guys!
