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 which arrive here on any
given day (especially during common holiday periods) can be a bit
overwhelming, sometimes hundreds each day.
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 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
1) Always include words such as: "auto reply", "automatic reply"
or "auto response" in the subject line, or
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 "Options"
link 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 descriptions in the email "Subject" line of your auto-reply
(with or without a hyphen):
By consistently including any of those in the "Subject" line
of your auto-reply email, the daily email chores here will be greatly
Wishing you love, harmony and beauty,
