Auto-Responder
This feature allows you to specify that automated responses be sent in a number of different circumstances.  The top of this screen shows a number of strings that can be inserted into the response text in order to craft responses with text that is specific to the list that is using the auto-responder.

Description

Should Mailman send an auto-response to mail list posters? If yes, then Mailman will automatically send the response text (entered below) or a specified attachment to persons sending mail to the list address.  This may be useful, for example, in sending FAQs or list participation guidelines to senders. 
Auto-response text to send to mail list posters. This field contains the text that is mailed to all posters to the list address when the auto-response feature is turned on for the list address.  If you would prefer to send a file as the automatic response, you should specify and upload the file using the field below the text box.
Should Mailman send an auto-response to email sent to the -admin and -owner addresses? This setting allows you to specify auto response actions to be taken if you would like to have replies sent from the list owner/administrator.
Auto-response text to send to -admin and -owner emails. This field contains the text that is mailed to anyone sending mail to the -admin or -owner email addresses when the auto-response feature is turned on for the list -admin and -owner addresses..  If you would prefer to send a file as the automatic response, you should specify and upload the file using the field below the text box.
Should Mailman send an auto-response to emails sent to the -request address?  If you choose yes, decide whether you want Mailman to discard the original email, or forward it on to the system as a normal mail command. Mailman allows you to intercept mail traffic sent to a list's administrative address.  In addition to sending an automated response, you may also specify whether the system will discard the message or forward it along to the administrative command handler.  This may be useful in informing users about list use or enforcing membership rules.
Auto-response text to send to -request emails. This field contains the text that is mailed to all posters to the -request address when the auto-response feature is turned on for the list -request addresses..  If you would prefer to send a file as the automatic response, you should specify and upload the file using the field below the text box.
Number of days between auto-responses to either the mailing list or -admin/-owner address from the same poster.  Set to zero (or negative) for no grace period (i.e. auto-respond to every message). This setting allows you to determine the frequency with which people will receive auto responses send to auto-responder active addresses.  Setting this value to zero means that a response will be sent for every posting to the active address, otherwise additional responses will not be sent to a given user until the number of days specified by this field have passed.
