Sorry, i forgot to explain the side effect of "Reply sender address". In 
the example of you having two emails yourname at example.com and 
support at example.com. If you put both emails in the "my emails" field and 
then put yourname at example.com in the "reply" field. When someone sends 
an email to support at example.com the auto reply they get back will be 
from yourname at example.com with nothing in that email telling them they 
are getting that reply because they sent an email to 
support at example.com.

Unless you hand type it in the email body letting them know why they 
getting a reply from someone they didn't email.

But if you have several alias emails that you want auto reply to handle, 
there is no way for you or them to know which email address they sent an 
email to that triggered the auto reply. So consider that in your auto 
reply body message if that fits your situation.

Now all of that said... im 99% sure if you just leave the "reply sender" 
blank/empty, then it will auto populate the auto reply From: address 
with the email address they sent an email to that triggered the out of 
office reply. This way the reply will come from the matching email 
address they contacted.
