What is Private Message: Auto Reply?
This will give your users the option to have the forum send an auto-reply to PM's they receive.
This can be every PM, or PM's during a specified time frame.

The idea for this mod came from http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=116325 by Hellcat. While the idea came from there, this code is custom, and mine (just thought I should note that).

Features
  • Adds an auto reply option to the Private Message system for users.
  • The mod can be turned ON and OFF in when a user edits their options.
  • The mod can be turned ON and OFF globally by the admin.
  • The mod can be set to only allow certain usergroups to use the system.
  • Users have the option of specifying a timeframe for the auto reply.

Installation
1. Extract the contents of the zip file.
2. Enter your AdminCP and go to Plugins & Products > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product]
3. Import the product using the `product-pm_autoreply.xml` file.
4. Configure the mod in AdminCP -> Settings -> Options -> Private Message Options

Upgrading
In many cases, all you'll need to do to upgrade is follow the installation instructions above.

The only difference, will be you'll need to allow the files to overwrite. Also, when re-importing the
product file, you'll need to set "Allow Overwrite" to "Yes".

Changelog
Version 1.0.1, 02/05/2013
  • Removed "excluded" usergroups and changed to ti "allowed".
  • Added code to disable an auto-reply being sent if the sender has their own auto-reply set to On.

Version 1.0.0, 05/01/2011
  • Initial release.

Nice work! This looks like a promising mod!

I've got a simple question regarding looping. What happens if two users BOTH have auto-reply enabled and one sends a message to the other? Will the auto-reply keep bouncing back and forth until both mailboxes are full?

THere's something unusual with the setting, it's the "Excluded Usergroups". usually we use the opposite.

In my mind usergroups whose permitted to use this mod is fewer than the excluded one.

This is the one thing holding me off on installing this as well.

Is anyone running this on v4.2PL2?

Any plans on adding a "whitelist" or minimum post to get through? Both would be nice options.

I just thought about that special case and wondered if it would start to jump in an infinite loop.
Thanks, I'll have a try

Installed for testing with thanks on vBulletin 4.1.3pl5...

First question...

I have no idea what I've done wrong, but I can't find the user screen anywhere, that a member in the "included" group can set the options shown in the pics.

I'm not referring to the AdminCp options under "Private Messages", as I have set those. I'm talking about where a logged in member would find the options to set for himself personally.

The screen shown does not appear under "General Settings" on my site after I've installed this mod.

Thanks for any feedback ..

Regards,
Doug
