It's worthwhile noting there are that scripts that let you set up an autoresponder on your own host. People are attracted to them because there aren't monthly fees and they feel like they'll have more power over their messages and settings, which is great in theory. But you should probably stay away from them as, unless you really understand the technologies involved, they're usually more trouble than they're worth.

It's important to know that the autoresponder companies have solid relationships with e-mail providers and this is important when it comes to your messages getting through spam filters.
