One...[nbsp][nbsp] Hey everybody! I'm back!!! It feels great (and is time consuming with all the lights on) to be back here on the forums! :)
Two...[nbsp][nbsp] JulieA, how's the new munchkin coming along? :)
Three... Here is one solid rock hard cookie for Deb, TeRRa, or Justin. ;) I set up an autoresponder for my root e-mail account (email@example.com) and instucted people to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org thinking that it would be forwarded to the root and the orginal sender would receive the auto "I'm out of town" message and I would receive their msg. What actually happened? The messages sent looped between my root account and email@example.com so long that I did NOT receive any messages in the 2 weeks I have been gone because the original sender got it in an error message! eeek! I came back and I have got to say how craptacularly I set up the whole thing. Is there any way to retrieve all of the messages any more? I still have the responder up a we speak if you want to test it out or something...
Ahhhh the life of a webaholic.... :D

On a mail loop like that, I'm afraid there is no way to retrieve them...[nbsp][nbsp]The messages would have been discarded by the Mail server if it saw an infinite loop...
More of what you were looking for is a custom baked 'Vacation' routine that I just did for someone else...[nbsp][nbsp]And yes, I used the AutoResponder as well and created that loop you are referring to, so I know what you are talking about... ;)[nbsp][nbsp]It takes a clever bit of thought to get around the loop, and is problematic when email has to utilize the 'catch-all' account...
When I find some time, I will try to post up the Vacation routine that I used to pull it off...

Eeeeehhhhh.... oh well, I guess that two less hours I need to spend replying to e-mails if I don't want to be too pessimistic. :D
