We have a new documentation site for cPanel & WHM! You can find our new documentation site at docs.cpanel.net.

We will continue to maintain our API documentation on this server.

  • cPanel API 1 Functions - Email::getarsinterval
Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata



This function retrieves an autoresponder's interval setting. The interval setting determines the amount of time, in hours, that the server waits between autoresponder messages to the same address.


cPanel API 1 is deprecated. Do not use this function. Instead, we strongly recommend that you use the following newer functions:


 LiveAPI PHP Class
$cpanel = new CPANEL(); // Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
$get_autoresponder_interval = $cpanel->api1('Email', 'getarsinterval', array('user@example.com') ); // Call the function.


For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.

 LiveAPI Perl Module
my $cpliveapi = Cpanel::LiveAPI->new(); # Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
my $get_autoresponder_interval = $cpliveapi->api1('Email', 'getarsinterval', ['user@example.com'] ); # Call the function.


For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.


 cPanel Tag System (deprecated)


In cPanel & WHM version 11.30 and later, cPanel tags are deprecated. We provide this example to help developers move from the old cPanel tag system to our LiveAPI system. We strongly recommend that you only use the LiveAPI system to call the cPanel APIs.
