     autorespond -- simple autoresponder for qmail

     autorespond time num message dir

     This manual page documents	briefly	the autorespond	command.  This manual
     page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the	origi-
     nal program does not have a manual	page.

     autorespond sends an automatically	generated response to emails for given
     address(es).  It catches simple situations	such as	mail from a mailer-
     daemon, empty envelope sender, bulk precedence headers, etc.

     time    amount of time to consider	a message (in secs)

     num     maximum number of messages	to allow within	time secs

	     the filename of the message to send

     dir     the directory to hold the log of messages

     This manual page was written by Sam Johnston <>, for the
     Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).  It was converted to
     mdoc(7) format by Peter Pentchev <> for use by the
     FreeBSD port of autorespond.
