We should look into:

1) adding headers to our notification emails to prevent (well-behaved) auto-responders from

2) check headers that auto-responders add, and not post to tickets/discussions/etc.  If there
are popular autoresponse systems that don't set a relevant header, and body text needs to
be analyzed, we can consider that for a second iteration on this.

Will require some research on what standards exist and how popular systems (e.g. gmail, exchange,
etc) handle autoresponses.
