GMail + Home Computer = Auto Response?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I want to have my home computer respond to certain emails with a "Failed to send" type messages.

I saw there were stuff in the settings of gmail like:

"Have your own domain? Use Gmail with your domain for free."

Is there any way to hook up my home computer with gmail to send messages quoting the sender's email & date sent?

I want to see if spammers will fall for the error mail:

Most likely there will be a little coding involved.

Can this be done with the ISS stuff?


PS: I do not get any spam in my inbox, but it wont hurt to try on my spam account. [which also never gets spam in the inbox]

Interesting but I think the spam bot would just recogonize your acount as a true one by detecting someone sending back a response no matter what it is. Then again it depends on how the spammer wants detection he may have set it up to work. Nice question post I would enjoyed to here what happens.
