Auto Reply 1.2 for EIMS Released
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Auto Reply 1.2 for EIMS Released Nanuet, NY - Aug. 3, 2002 -- MCF Software, LLC has released version 1.2 of its Auto Reply plug-in for EIMS (Eudora Internet Mail Server).

This ensures that the sender of the original message will only receive one copy of the auto-reply message, preventing the infamous auto-reply loop that is all too common with most auto-reply solutions. Version 1.2 correctly handles the case where the Mail Folder is an alias, supports writing to its own log file, and fixes a couple of bugs. A trial version can be downloaded from the MCF Software web site at The trial version will only handle 2 users. Once it is registered, the same version will become fully functional. The Auto Reply plug-in is $50 US. MCF Software, LLC...
