You should be aware, especially if you intend to use this for a professional e-mail address, that many senders (like me) refuse to respond to those robots. People who use those systems report they have to look at the "reject" box often to find real messages that they would otherwise miss. Pretty much defeats the whole concept, and annoys your correspondents in the meantime.
