    Does anyone know how (or if you even can) set up an auto-reply in hotmail?

    I've switched to gmail, but i still get the occassional message in my hotmail account. I'm tired of sorting through the 100+ pieces of junk mail every week just to find the three things that I actually want to read.

    I'd like to set up and auto reply that points people to my new address.

    only thing i can think off is quite complicated:

    - install fetchmail (darwin ports)
    - parse the message to get the header (from field)
    - send an smtp mail the sender pointing out your new address

    this is a quick reply so i might miss some details, but that's the idea :)

    Bah. I'll take that as another example of "hotmail is crap, you can't do that".
