@Ignas : Try with autoresponder in place of autorespond

This is a brilliant work! But just wanted to ask how to make autoresponder to respond in UTF-8 encoding? If I write a respond message in non english letters like ąčęėįšų - I get garbage when it autoresponds.

Do you know how to solve this?

If you want to manually set an autorespond message (instead of using qmailadmin) :
