I use the autoresponder to let people know I'm too busy to respond to all email or response may be delayed. But with some of my most important contacts, I will always want to respond no matter how busy I am, and I would love DreamHost's autoresponder to not send the automated message to those people. For instance: I'd rather not have my contacts at Apple receive my autoresponder, so I would enter *@apple.com in DreamHost's interface.
Might be an easy thing to make for you guys?
Thanks for listening!
