Auto responder problem with Linux server

Ok, I have an autoresponder setup on a shared server, so that any emails sent to :
misc@examplesite.com
Gets an autoresponder from :
main@examplesite.com

and

I also have another autoresponder setup, so that any emails sent to :
main@examplesite.com
Gets an autoresponder from :
main@examplesite.com

BUT, it seems that when someone sends an email to :
misc@examplesite.com
the recipient receives an autoresponder from BOTH :
misc@examplesite.com
AND
main@examplesite.com?
It needs to be ONLY from main@examplesite.com

Any help much appreciated.

Regards.

Dexie.

This is not an Apache issue (Apache doesn't handle emails). What kind of server are you running, Linux or Windows?

Any help appreciated.

Are you setting this up via a control panel (cPanel etc.)? There are several different programs for handling mail under Linux, (Sendmail, Exim, Postfix...), and each has different ways of handling such situations. Do you know what program your server is running?

Hi,

Sendmail is the MTA (mail transfer agent) and the service that handles the mail is Exim on the server.
