Users keep sending messages with “get bridges” to the help desk instead of sending them to BridgeDB. It's painful.

It would be best to automatically detect such emails and bounce them to BridgeDB without human intervention.

“Scrip” will need to be written in RT. Interesting bits of the documentation:

Also, if the message is not coming from a gmail or yahoo address then the autoresponder should send back a message saying that the sender needs a gmail or a yahoo mail to use BridgeDB via mail.

I believe this is solved, as the generic autoresponse includes a pointer to the correct bridge email / website.
