You can filter for autoresponders and archive them, to some degree, with elbow grease. But it’s that time of year where we start seeing a ton of autoresponders and it’s got me thinking about it again. Personally, I don’t care to see them ever. I literally don’t care in any context. Hit me back when you hit me back, I’m not going to read what your autoresponder says anyway.
This is the kind of innovation I want to see in email clients. Not reinventing the entire concept of email, just helping me see less junk I don’t want to see, without me having to work so hard.

There are some cases where an autoresponder can be helpful, so maybe there’s a middle-ground. Perhaps your inbox checks the autoresponder to see if you’ve had that exact message before, then hides it?
I’d think it would certainly just be an option, as I bet some people like to see them (I just get too many and don’t care). But yeah some intelligence behind it too would be cool.
