In your Gmail inbox, click on the gear in the top-right corner ("Settings"). Select "Settings" from the menu that appears. Scroll down in the window that appears until you see "Vacation Responder." Change the date, subject, and message as you'd like, and select "Vacation responder on." Make sure to scroll to the bottom of the page and select "Save Changes."
