Here's how my CR program is working at present:

If I get mail from an address not on my passlist, it is sent to a gzipped
file and the auto-response is sent out. 

If I don't get a response in 48 hours, the mail is dumped and the passord-

If  the password is used with an address other than the one it was acquired
with, the mail is dumped and the password de-activated.

I don't ever see the mail and the whole process is user-transparent.

Very nice....
