The From: address does not match the Reply-To address.
This explains why everyone else’s AutoResponders match the above addresses, but then others direct all replies (especially the NDRs) to a sink address that never gets read. However, I am going to persevere with a genuine reply address, thus I have set both From and Reply-to: = guyc (and then I filter out the NDRs).
Tired of writing scripts? The User Management Resource Administrator solution by Tools4ever offers an alternative to time-consuming manual processes.
It features 100% auto provisioning, Helpdesk Delegation, Connectors to more than 130 systems/applications, Workflow Management, Self Service and many other benefits. Click on the link for more information onUMRA.
Keep sending in the emails!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who write-in. Each and every comment is prized. Criticisms are especially useful, but they go through this cathartic process.
Conclusion, please keep sending me your tips comments and of course criticisms.
Guy Recommends: The Free IP Address Tracker (IPAT)
Calculating IP Address ranges is a black art, which many network managers solve by creating custom Excel spreadsheets. IPAT cracks this problem of allocating IP addresses in networks in two ways:
For Mr Organized there is a nifty subnet calculator, you enter the network address and the subnet mask, then IPAT works out the usable addresses and their ranges.
For Mr Lazy IPAT discovers and then displays the IP addresses of existing computers. Download the Free IP Address Tracker
