Classic means stable, mostly. Which is good in this case, and vacation
works very well.

That's the reason why I usually never use one. However building a
sensible autoresponder that avoids loops and doesn't talk on decently
formatted mailing lists shouldn't be too hard to implement (I know that
this is the perfect phrase to invite trouble). It's just that a lot of
people are used to having autoresponders because their neighbour has one
and so they need one too. Sysadmins know this vicious circle, that's why
I asked for experience with these beasts.
