replying an email

Hi
I was wondering if it is possible to write a program to reply to an email as soon as an email is received.

For example, I get a listed of emails from database and send out the emails with some information and ask the receivers not to reply as the email will not be received.

However, if people accidently send a reply. I want to send them an email with a message that they should call me.

Is it possible to accomplish this using java, shell script, or stored procedure? Or this is the email server configuration?

Any help in this will be greatly appreciated

Thanks

You should be able to set up your mail server to forward mail sent to a specific address (the one they replied to) to another (maybe your) address.

Take a look at the JavaMail API.
