If you use auto-reply messages, please read this....
With thousands of subscribers receiving the Bowl of Saki every day, the number
of auto-reply messages that arrive here on any given day (especially during
common holiday periods) can be a bit overwhelming.
Clearly there is no need or intent for me to actually open or reply to the
auto-reply messages, but if those messages are not clearly marked as an
auto-reply, then it's necessary to open each of the auto-reply emails to see
what the email is about... which is a considerable waste of precious time.
Here are three simple options, any of which will easily solve the problem:
1) Always include the word auto-reply in the subject line, or
2) Subscribe to the Bowl of Saki using a special email account which never sends
any auto-reply messages, or
3) Temporarily put the Bowl of Saki on "Hold" by using the "Subscription
provided at the bottom of each day's Bowl of Saki.
The first option listed above (standardized text) is probably the easiest
for most people. In that case, please include one of the following words in the email "Subject" line
of any auto-reply:
By consistently including any of those words in your auto-reply email "Subject"
line, the daily email chores
here will be greatly simplified.
