auto response and the body of the email, you can place '%S' anywhere
in here which will be replaced with the subject of the original
message in the response. Click 'Create Auto Responder' to apply

Deleting An Auto Responder
To delete an auto responder, click the 'Delete' link corresponding
to it in the listing on the Auto Responders page. You will be asked
to confirm this action before the auto responder is actually deleted.

that once every hour. This is necessary to avoid recurring bounces
caused by unsolicited mail with invalid return addresses.
