How to set up an automated reply
You can also set up your old account to send an auto-reply to new messages, which you can customize with a message about your new Comcast address. If you’d like to do so, click on the following links for instructions on how to set up an auto-reply message:
- Cablevision / Optimum
- CenturyLink (under "Setting away messages")
- Comcast (midway down the page)
- Frontier (using "Vacation Response")
- Yahoo (and other Yahoo-based providers)
Please note that this auto-reply will only work until your old account is closed or disabled.
