Further to my previous topic, can anyone tell me if there are any potential problems in setting up an autoresponder to messages from Proz? This would obviously be directed at human beings requesting quotes, etc., but (in my case at least) it would also respond to kudoz, job notifications, etc, as the same address has to be used for all messages from proz.

Apart from not wanting to generate unnecessary email traffic, I wonder if all these automatic responses could result in Proz suspending the sending of messages to my email address? (Obviously I know nothing about these things, which is why I ask!)

I doubt it. The reply-to address of such posts is bounce-handler@proz.com, which is likely a black hole.

Profile settings? Feb 4, 2010

I'm not sure I understand what you want, but if it is limiting the traffic you get from ProZ.com, the trick would be to modify the settings in your profile to only receive those types of notifications you want. To modify your settings, click on the Settings tab at the top of your profile, then, in the column to your left, select (1) the KudoZ Dashboard and (2) the Jobs Dashboard.

I hope that I'm not the only one who doesn't read every new thread. Maybe you could add a link to that thread?

What I do when I go on vacation Feb 4, 2010

Steven,
When I go on vacation, or unavailable for a period long enough to warrant it, I set up an autoresponder on my email account.
At the same time I disable ProZ notifications (KudoZ, Jobs, etc.) on my Profile page.
I use the top On/Off switch on the KudoZ dashboard, the same on the Jobs dashboard, and also on the Forum dashboard. I don't need to change any of the detailed settings, it is just the On/Off setting that does the trick. When I am back, I turn them back on.
It works well for me.
Perhaps this is what you need?
Katalin
