Is it possible to send a multi part email in text and html from an Exim autoresponder

My autoresponder.filter file looks something like this

if personal then
    seen mail
        from $local_part@$domain
        subject "AUTOREPLY: ${extract{response_subject}{$address_data}}"
        text "Dear $h_from:\n\n ${extract{response_text}{$address_data}}"

I cannot see how it can be possible to send a multi part email using Exim autoresponder.

Can it be done and if so how?

I suspect you need to look at a more advanced tool then just a filter. –  Zoredache Oct 27 '10 at 17:26
I suspect you are right. I will write something to handle these replies, meanwhile I live in hope that someone knows a cheeky hack :) –  Richard Holloway Oct 28 '10 at 9:42
