Autoresponders are an essential to to a business wishing to make money online! They are used for
many different purposes, but there are a number of ways that
they should not be used. Using
autoresponders incorrectly or any improper way can make things
vewry difficult for other people, and it could
cause catastrophic things to happen to you!
If you have one autoresponder respond to another
it will create chaos, and in extreme cases, it
will overload servers. Here is how this happens, you sign
up for something using your autoresponder email
address. So you sign up, and a message is sent to
an other autoresponder, which then replies to
your autoresponder, which then responds to that
autoresponder. See what happens here? You have created a loop that will continue on and on until
it is manually stopped and fixed.
People have also used their autoresponder address on
purpose when they sign up for discussion lists. In
effect what this does is it causes their autoresponder message
to be sent to the entire list each time a person sends a real message to
the discussion list. It goes without saying that discussion list
members and owners don’t like this one bit, and the
autoresponder owner will get banned from the list.
So, the moral of the story is to use your autoresponder in
the manner that it was meant to be used. Do not use it irresponsibly! This will not only will you create
issues for others, but you will discover that you get
reported for spam! This is something that as an internet marketer trying to make a living on the internet, you do not want to have happen to you.
