Is it possible to create an Auto-Responder that only responds to one domain of emails?
e.g: only respond to emails from @domainname.com

Is it possible to create an Auto-Responder that only responds to one email address?
e.g: only respond to emails from [email protected]

Have you had a look at the Auto Responder settings in your cPanel?

Auto Responders

You can use auto responders to send a message back automatically to anyone who sends an email to a specified account. This can be useful for times when you are on vacation or unavailable, or if you have a generic message that you wish to send from a support email address.

I'm not talking about just 'anyone' on a specific email account.

I'm not talking about wildcards, but exactly 'someone' or a select 'some people' range.

The documentation is not clear in regards to this, that is why I'm asking....

"...that only responds to one domain of emails?"

For your question:

Is it possible to create an Auto-Responder that only responds to one domain of emails?
e.g: only respond to emails from @domainname.com

Is it possible to create an Auto-Responder that only responds to one email address?
e.g: only respond to emails from [email protected]
The answer is no. Not in cPanel > Autoresponders area. If you pull up the area to add an Autoresponder, you'll see no option for filtering the email based on sender to the email. There are no filter options at all there. There are only interval options. Based on what you are asking, you want only auto responders sent when a set domain or email sends an email to the account with the auto responder. We don't currently provide that.

If you go to cPanel > User Level Filtering or Account Level Filtering, there is also no option to reply back to the user besides a failure message being sent back to a user.

What you are wanting to do would require creating either a filter or transport. There are discussions of transport creation for exim auto reply:

I'd suggest posting on the exim.org mailing list for exim users with your question:
