    Automatic Reply to E-mail (WinME OXP-sp2)

    Recently changed ISP's; ergo have new e-mail addresses. Want to send an auto reply to those who send e-mail to the old address (for as long as the old ISP server processes it) but I don't want to send it to anyone on my Junk or Adult Content lists. Haven't been able to figure out how to set this rule. Is this ill-advised? Will it generate more spam?

    All suggestions greatly appreciated and gratefully considered.

    Its always a risk - but your name will end up on the lists in any event <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15>

    Just set several rules in order and ensure that some include the "Dont process more rules" option

    I'd suggest something like

    1 sent to your new address, stop processing rules
    2 sent to your old address and junk senders, move to junk, stop processing rules
    3 sent to your old address and not containing your own name in the body, stop processing rules [normally a good sign of junk mail <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
    ... possible other exclusions here
    4 send automessage to remainder
