This is news to me, as discussion of an autoresponder has

So another week or so isn't going to make much difference.

The situation is that we have a solution for autoresponders
in the form of a script Ken Coar wrote many years ago.  As
the topic rarely comes up, nobody currently doing infra is
all that familiar with Ken's script on an operational basis.

So somebody has to look over how the script works for other
situations and pass it appropriate arguments for it to work
for yours.  It won't take that person much to do typing-wise
once they figure out how it all works, but as we don't consider
this a time-bound request we haven't prioritized it as such.
