Auto-reply vs ReplyRule?

Post by kdiamond » 2017-01-09 22:53

Hi.

Auto-reply feature works good, but Reply rule does not. Why this is not the same? Reply Rule will, unlike Auto-Reply, hit spam on gmail.

Differences:
Auto reply mail source:
Return-Path: <user@mail.com>
Received-SPF: pass (google.com: domain of user@mail.com designates 93.103.7.222 as permitted sender)
spf=pass (google.com: domain of user@mail.com designates 93.103.7.222 as permitted sender)

Reply Rule mail source:
Return-Path: <>
Received-SPF: pass (google.com: domain of postmaster@mail.com designates 93.103.7.222 as permitted sender)
spf=pass (google.com: domain of postmaster@mail.com designates 93.103.7.222 as permitted sender)
no dkim signature

Why is that so?

Thank you
Br,
Dali

Any news on that ?

We would need to use ReplyRule (if it would work) instead of AutoReply. There are some incoming emails (server statistics and other notifications) that should not be replied, else it will create a loop and mess on the other side.

So Reply rule would be

Reply if not from email mail@test.com

Thank you
