     MAIL VACATION MESSAGE

     This menu allows you to set a small autoresponder that will reply
to each piece of mail that comes into your mailbox with a short
message of your choosing.

     It only works for mail stored on pop.lightlink.com, it does not
work for shell account mail, nor for free minipops.

     It only replies once a week to the same person, and it is smart
enough not to reply to mailing lists.  So remember, if you test your
own vacation message by sending e-mail to yourself, you will only get
a response the first time you test it until a week passes.
 
     If you wish to turn on the vacation message, click on ENABLE and
enter the message you want sent in the text area.  Anywhere you put
$SUBJECT, the subject line of the incoming mail that is being
responded to, will be inserted.  You don't really need this, but its
there to use if you want it.

     Make sure NOT to remove the top Subject: line, as this will be
the subject line that the receiver will see.

     Make sure there is at least one *COMPLETELY BLANK* line after the
subject line and your first line of text.  Don't even put invisible
spaces there.

     Also make sure to hit the carriage return at the end of each
line, do not just type across the end of the window and let it wrap
for you, it will come out as one long line in the final e-mail.

     When you are done, hit the Submit button.  You will be given an
opportunity to verify that the settings have been changed.
 
     When you come back from your vacation, come back to this menu and
click on DISABLE and hit the submit button, and the vacation message
will be disabled.  The actual vacation message will remain in your
home directory in case you want to use it again, but it won't be
active until you next hit the ENABLE button and submit it.

     If you want the auto response to be sent with a different From:
e-mail address than your lightlink address put it under the Subject
line:

Subject: Gone for a while.
From: address@domain.com

     Otherwise the vacation program will send the e-mail in the
name of your lightlink e-mail box.
