don't respond to mail loops

If a listserv goes into a mail loop, the last thing you want to do is respond to the message. The autoresponder will just respond to your message as well, doubling the number of messages in the mail loop. Look ahead in your inbox to see if the problem is already fixed. If not, contact the list administrator off-list. Listserv programs are designed to filter out autoresponder messages, but sometimes they mess up.
