LXer: Setup a Spam-Proof Vacation Autoresponder with Procmail + Sendmail

Published at LXer:

The problem with vacation auto responders like 'vacation' for sendmail is that spammers often fake the From: address. Auto responding to these addresses can get your mail server blacklisted. To avoid this you can setup your autoresponder with procmail and, if you are running a spam filter on your machine, you can tell procmail to auto respond only if the X Spam Status header is 'No.'
