I just made up the first release of my mail autoresponder script for
The script works with a mysql database so your users can configure it
through it (on/off, replytext).
The mail is handed over through maildrop's /etc/maildroprc:
cc "| /usr/local/php/current/bin/php \
-q /h/paw/lib/autoresponder.php 2>&1 >/dev/null"
The php script takes the mail through a pipe and gets the final
recipient and the sender address from the mailheader.
If the autoresponder is activated for this final recipient in the
database, the deposited answer will be sent and the sender address is
being marked as locked for further responses (-> mailloop!). If you
deactivate the autoresponder of course you should delte those entries
from your database so that senders will be notified again if the
responder is reactivated.
The script has been written for my database. But there shouldn't be any
problems to make the necessary changes to another database. The script
should also work fine with procmail instead of using maildrop.
For those people who are interested in the script and my database
structure, please have a look to
