By default, Squirrel Mail doesn't have a feature for away messages. This feature is, however, available through a plugin.

If you are able to install plugins into SquirrelMail and your server is properly setup, you can find the plugin and instructions at

If you're using Squirrel Mail from a CPanel instance, check if your CPanel has the "Auto Responders" function, for this purpose.

Autoresponders are usually a function of the mail server and may be independent of the mail reader program.  Ask your hosting company where to look for these.  I second striker46' suggestion to look in CPanel.  On my CPanel, under "mail" there is a tab for autoresponders.

Just don't forget to take it off when you come back from vacation ;-)

I used this plugin:
After you install it (copy to plugins folder and enable with any email user can configure it by logging in squirrelmail and going to Options -> Auto Response: Reply or Forward. The user must check reply or forward and modify the message and that's it.
