automatic reply programs

Dear BAPC subscribers:

Sorry to bother everyone, but there's an ongoing problem in which
subscribers to this list set up automatic "vacation" replies that get
sent back to me any time someone sends a message to the bapc list.
This is the wrong way to do things.  You should set up your automatic
reply so that it replies only to messages which are sent directly to
you, not to those which are sent to mailing lists that you belong to.
If you're using outlook, there are some directions in this article:

If your automatic reply system sends a reply to messages sent to bapc,
I'm likely to set your subscription not to send you any email, and you
will have to fix it at https://cosmos.phy.tufts.edu/mailman/listinfo/bapc 
when you get back.
