RE: I-D Recommendations for Automatic Responses to Electronic Mail

2002-06-06 10:38:30

I wouldn't have put in auto-submitted except that some uniform means
of marking automatic responses is necessary to prevent loops.  There
are heuristics that could be used instead, but they don't work as well.

Using a MAIL FROM of <> for autoresponses meets the requirement to 
prevent loops.  Auto-submitted is only useful (to meet the 'prevent
loops' requirement) when the MAIL FROM isn't null.  For other reasons
there is some additional value in including auto-submitted even if
MAIL FROM is <>.
