Ahhh, good point. But I believe that most mail programs (including Lookout) will only auto-respond to messages where the owners address is the only one in the "TO:" field. (Someone correct me if they know better...I'm on Eudora here...) Since messages from the mailing list are send TO: "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" then the autoresponders should ignore them. This would be consistent with the fact that I've posted a few messages to this list over the past few weeks, messages that must have been delivered to at least hundreds of mailboxes with my address as the reply-to, yet I haven't received a single automatic out-of-office or vacation response to any of them... -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] For additional commands, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] To contact the list administrators, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
