Auto-reply feature on Hmailserver

Post by boazhfrankel » 2024-05-24 06:13

I am wondering if any one has run into any problems with the Auto-reply feature on Hmailserver. It seems to stop responding until I reboot the server and send a new message to that user I have auto reply turned on for.

Thank You in advance.

hMailServer only sends one auto-reply per sender.
Looks like that's by design.

However, you can search the forum for autoreply scripts. Here's one. I don't know if it responds more than once per sender. viewtopic.php?f=20&t=28942

That script/feature is just to remotely set the same built in auto reply feature - it will still behave the same way (it's still a great script feature though. :mrgreen: )

You can schedule a restart of the service every evening (for example during your nightly backup).
