Question, It sounds like you have two theoretically different types
of mail being recieved. The first type is normal mail that everyone
gets and can read whenever the recipient likes. The second sounds
like mail that will be acted up by some process instead of a person
hence the automation part. If this scenario is true, can you identify
the email that needs to be automated prior to it hitting your door?
What i mean is, does it go to a certain email address or have a
specific subject etc?
