You may wish to set up a vacation response in Bmail for a variety of reasons. The most frequently used reason is exactly what the name suggests – that you will be away on vacation. You may also wish to use it for other reasons – like if you are going to change your contact information in the near future and would like everyone who emails you to be notified of that.

Follow these instructions from Google for adding/changing your vacation response.

If you are using the vacation responder to let people know that your contact info is changing, it should say something along the lines of “Thank you for trying to reach me. Unfortunately, I will discontinue using this email address starting MM-DD-YYYY (where MM-DD-YYYY is the date you switch to the new email). Please contact me at this address: (type your new email address after the colon).”
