Auto Responders Menu

This lists all available local mailboxes that can host an Auto Responder. Double-click a mailbox from this list and then fill in the desired auto response parameters to cause the Auto Responder to be triggered whenever a message arrives for the mailbox.

Enable an auto responder for this account

You may enable or disable the auto response script via this checkbox.

Use this auto response script

This field specifies the full path and filename of the response file (*.RSP) that will be processed and dispatched to the message sender. This file will first be passed through the filtering mechanism associated with MBF files. Any template string available for use in an MBF file will also be available for use in an auto-response file.

Do not send auto response if message is from one of  these addresses

Here you can list addresses that you wish to be excluded from responses initiated by this Auto Responder.

Del

Click this button to delete selected entries from the list of excluded addresses.

Add

After entering an address in the New Excluded Address text box, click this button to add it to the list of excluded address.

New excluded address

If you wish to add an address to the list of excluded addresses enter it here and then click the Add button.

Run a Program

Run this program

This field specifies the full path and filename to a program that will be launched when new mail arrives at the specified mailbox. Care must be taken to ensure that this process terminates properly and can run unattended. Optional command line parameters can be entered immediately following the executable path if desired.

Pass message to process

Select this option and the process specified in the Run This Process field will be passed the name of the triggering message as the first available command line parameter. Note that by the time the message name is passed to the specified process the account’s MBF file will already have been applied. This is useful in that applying an MBF can reformat the message into a consistent structure regardless of the source of the original message. When the auto responder is setup on an account which is forwarding mail to another location and not retaining a local copy in its own mailbox then this function will be disabled.

Add sender to this mailing list

If a mailing list is entered in this field then the sender of the mail message will be automatically joined to that mailing list. This is a very handy feature for building automatic lists.

Remove sender from this mailing list

If a mailing list is entered in this field then the sender of the mail message will be automatically removed from the specified mailing list.
