    So I've got the autoreply set up with a template and a filter and the filters condition is that the subject contains what we'll call "X".

    So someone emails in and they have "X" in the subject, and then the autoresponder sends back the template however it includes "was:(X)" in the new subject. In other words it puts the original subject title in the new one meaning that if the person was to send a second reply this would also go through that filter and have the same autoreply sent out.

    How can I get around this, is there a way to not allow thunderbird to put the old message's subject in the new one?

    Thanks

    I'm a little confused with your question... If you use #tag in the title it will then send them back a "re: blah blah blah #tag"? Is that what you're trying to say?

    filter re: so if he replies back to your template then there should be a re: add a filter "does not contain re:"

    Let's just say the filter word is bottle. Every email that comes through with bottle in the subject gets sent the autoreply.
    The subject of the autoreply is supposed to be just "fish" but instead it sends it like this "fish (was: bottle)". Meaning that if the person then replies to this then the subject of the email will again contain bottle triggering a second autoreply.

    As writing this though I came across the solution, so I'll just post it here incase it ever helps anyone else (although it is a very specific situation :p )
    I'm going to change the filter to look for a subject that is "bottle" instead of containing it. This way the subject "fish (was:bottle)" won't set off the autoresponder.

    *For the record I'm not actually making money from fish and bottles, they was just used as examples :p
