    I'm uncertain if this is the right forum for this topic, but I would greatly appreciate any help you all could give me on this..

    I'm with a webhosting company that offers unlimited autoresponders. Unfortunately they're very simple ones that send a message back whenever anyone writes to a certain email address.

    Basically what I'm looking for, is an autoresponder that will reply when someone writes to a certain address AND has a certain subject line (and the autoresponder would reply accordingly)

    For example, something that could reply with more information when someone wrote to webmaster@something.com with "more info" in the subject line, while at the same time, someone who wants to know about pricing could write to that same address with "pricing info" - and get the corresponding autoreply for pricing.

    Does such an autoresponder exist? and better yet, could I find a free one that does this?

    In Eudora Pro you would need to follow these steps.

    1. Build stationary for each response. Stationary is under the Tools menu.
    2. Set up your Filters for each response. Your filters would look like:
    Header: To:
    Contains: email@server.com
    and the second header would be
    Header: Subject
    Contains: price info
    Under Action: You would put Reply with and in the next list box the appropriate stationary. Make sure that Incoming is checked at the top and the response will be put into your queue to be sent on the next outgoing packet.
