Improper Uses of Autoresponders

What You Need To Know About Internet Marketing Niche

Autoresponders are wonderful! They can be used for

a variety of things, but there are several ways that

autoresponders should not be used. Using

autoresponders in improper ways will make things

a bit more difficult for other people, and it could

make things really bad for you!

Having one autoresponder respond to another

autoresponder creates chaos, and in some cases, it

can overload servers. This happens when you sign

up for something, using your autoresponder email

address. You sign up, and a message is sent to

someone else’s autoresponder, which responds to

your autoresponder, which responds to that

autoresponder ? and this continues on and on until

it is manually stopped and straightened out.

Some people use their autoresponder address on

purpose when they sign up for discussion lists. In

effect, this causes an their autoresponder message

to be sent to the entire list, or to one person on the

list, each time a person sends a real message to

the discussion list. Needless to say, discussion list

members and owners frown on this practice, and the

autoresponder owner gets banned.

Avoid these problems and use your autoresponder in

ways that it was meant to be used. Do not use the

autoresponder irresponsibly! Not only will you create

problems for others, but you may find that you get

reported for spam!
