This class implements an email auto-response system.

It accesses mailboxes via POP3 or IMAP protocols and sends out automatic responses emails to the messages found in the inbox folder.

Currently it implements three types of auto-response:

* Send a response message using a given file

* Send response message using contents read from a given Web URL (in this case the email subject has the URL request)

* Send a custom response message generated by the current script

The response messages may be in plain text or HTML.

After the auto-response is sent, the mails are marked read or can be deleted.

This class is meant to be used from tasks run periodically for instance as cron jobs.

Sending and receiving e-mail messages is one of the most popular Internet applications.

Sometimes there is the need to provide immediate responses to incoming e-mail messages, especially when the recipient is away or may not reply to the messages right after they are received.

This class provides a generic solution for automating the processing of messages received in a mailbox accessible via either POP 3 or IMAP protocols.

The most common use of this class is to provide automatic replies to the incoming messages, but the class may be used also for other types of automated message processing.
