It really isn't that easy though. If you have a position with lots of
customer contacts, you just cannot be silent for a week or two, you
must respond to all unknown senders. That's why there is a
don't-reply-to option instead of an auto-reply list.
I noticed from Christian's address that we both work for banks, so I
recognized the problem. Being in a back-office position, I can check
the don't-reply-to-internet option, but not everyone can afford to do
