Make sure that the autoresponder will never send more than one
reply to any given address. (You'll need a simple database for
this.) This will defeat most loops.
Make sure that the autoresponder does not reply to messages with
null reverse path, since those are likely to be bounces, and you
don't want to bother remote postmasters with your vacation
Finally, if something does go wrong in spite of all the
precautions, people will want to alert the postmaster at your
host about the problem. Therefore, please make sure that someone
is handling postmaster mail even during your absence.
And then, have a great vacation!
