An autoresponder is a program that works in conjunction with a mail server to send a automatic reply to incoming eMail. The webmaster would set up the auto response through a Web-based interface.

As an example, an auto response could be setup for the eMail address <suggestions>. The autoresponder would then send out a response automatically when that eMail account received an eMail. The autoresponse could say something like, "We have received your suggesstion. We consider all suggestions seriously. Thank you."
