What is an autoresponder?

An autoresponder will automatically reply to any e-mail sent to a particular address. For example, if you have an autoresponder for the address of sales@yourname.com any incoming e-mail message sent to this address will automatically be replied to by a web robot. This robot will send back a form message that you set up. Among other things, this is useful for creating “request more information” e-mail addresses.
