lol -- I googled that one up too, Scott.  I thought, "holy crap,  
there must be a simpler way"

Maybe I shouldn't look for simple. :)

I did find another supposed procmail recipe for auto responding, but  
it didn't work at all.  I might have to troubleshoot that one, or try  
the one from clarkconnect.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I'm still open to other suggestions too, especially of the simple  
variety.  :)
