cd /usr/local/src
tar xzf autorespond-2.0.5.tar.gz

Bruce Guenter has a modified version of autoresponder here, with the following features, that you may want to consider:

- Limits rate of automatic responses (defaults to a maximum of one message every hour).
- Will not respond to nearly every type of mailing list or bulk email.
- Will not respond to bounce messages or MAILER-DAEMON.
- Bounces looping messages.
- Can insert the original subject into the response.
- Can copy original message into response.
- Can use links in the rate-limiting data directory to limit inode usage to a single inode.
- Can limit responses to a certain date/time range.
