ACES Email Lists - Block Auto-replies from sending to college lists

In the new Campus Lists system, an out-of-office or auto-reply message will be seen as a bounce. To avoid that scenario, we recommend that you prevent auto-replies when receiving messages from ACES, Extension, and campus email lists.

  1. Click on File > Automatic Replies (Out of Office)
  2. Select the "Rules" button from the bottom left of the new window
  3. Click "Add Rule"
  4. In the "From" box type *@aces.illinois.edu
  5. Click "Advanced"
  6. Check "Only items that do not match these conditions"
  7. Click "OK"
  8. Under action, click 'alert with' and choose "text" but leave it blank
  9. Click "OK"
  10. Click "OK"
  11. Create your automatic reply, and enable the "send auto replies"
  12. Click "OK"
  13. (Optional) Create a second rule with the same settings, but for step for, use *@lists.illinois.edu
