Hi, I would like to set up a reply feature on sendmail that replies to the sender once the message has been received on the server (not read), telling the sender that his message was received. How do I do this? Would it be possible to set this up for only certain users ?

Thanx
Johan

On the unix system I work there is a command in /usr/bin named vacation
which is an interactive program that reacts on incoming mail. Maybe you should try
to find this.
