I would suggest that when a message is sent to a distribution list, the
list should cause the message to contain this line in the header...
...and the autoresponder program should detect that line and not send a
reply at all. Why should a reply to go the poster? It certainly should
not! If I'm on a list with 8,000 subscribers and 100 are on vacation,
should I want to receive 100 notifications? No.
Most messages coming through the firstname.lastname@example.org have Precedence set
to bulk, but the message from Erik Parker had this setting:
Why is that? Doesn't vnc-list fix the Precedence on messages it
distributes? It ought to.
