  2. Create config.py and message.txt from their sample files
  3. Install requirements: pip3 install -r requirements.txt --user
  4. Create web backend on uberspace: uberspace web backend set app.example.com --http --port 5000

command=gunicorn --bind wsgi:app

Then run: supervisorctl reread, supervisorctl update, supervisorctl start autoreply-editor

Autoreply Setup

Mailbot file

Create ~/.filter-autoreply:

logfile "$HOME/mailfilter-autoreply.log"

FROM="Jane Doe <info@example.com>"

to "| mailbot -T reply -t $HOME/autoreply-editor/message.txt -d $HOME/autoresponders/autoresponsedb -N -A 'From: $FROM' /var/qmail/bin/qmail-inject -f ''"

Make sure that the file permissions are 0600!

Afterwards, also create the directory ~/autoresponders if necessary.

|maildrop $HOME/.filter-autoreply
