80% of emails are spam and viruses with forged from adress. Having an 
autoresponder is therefor asking for trouble. Auto responder were nice 
in the 90's but in this world this is a real pain. Like the bounce those 
are just making the problem worse. Emails cannot be used anymore like in 
the old time because bad guys make our lives hell. This is important to 
make understand this to people, autoresponder are evil ! ;)

. Email is less and less usefull as spammers make it unusable. We 
allready lost the war it seems. When the tool become unusable for his 
purpose : easy and reliable communication between people, it loose its 
purpose.. :(
