Autoresponders – Improper Uses of Autoresponders

by kitya on Jan.25, 2010, under About Autoresponders

Autoresponders are great because you can use them in a lot of ways. But there are several ways that they should not be used. It will be a bit more difficult for other people and to you if autoresponders are not used properly.

If you wonder what happens if one autoresponder respond to another autoresponder, it creates chaos, and in some cases, it can overload servers. When you sign up for something, using your autoresponder email address, this usually happens. You sign up, and a message is sent to someone else’s autoresponder, which responds to your autoresponder, which responds to that autoresponder – and this continues on and on until it is manually stopped and straightened out.

There are some people who use their autoresponder address on purpose when they sign up for discussion lists. The result is that it causes their autoresponder message to be sent to the entire list, or to one person on the list, every time a person sends a real message to
the discussion list. Needless to say, discussion list members and owners do not agree on this practice, and the autoresponder owner gets banned.

Try to avoid these problems and use your autoresponder responsibly. Use this it was meant to be used. You do not want to get reported for spam and also you do not want to create chaos for you and for others.
