Just a brief note: I'm unsubscribing people who set up autoreplies that
send mails even if the owner of the mail account is not listed in the To:
or Cc: lines. If it doesn't get too much, I'll send some brief note to the
subscriber that he's been nuked.

For explanation: If you send a mail to suse-security@xxxxxxx, the mail is
being received by a few thousand subscribers of the list. None of these
show up in the header: The recipient address is listed in the envelope of
the mail and is not visible while the mail is being transferred in SMTP
layer. So if you set up an autoreply that you are on vacation and drinking
Caipirinha on the beach, make sure that you only reply if your email
address appears in the To: or Cc: lines.

Thanks,
Roman.
