As most of you should know already, you can send emails directly to the ConfigMgr/SMS docs team at Microsoft using the email@example.com alias. The docs team monitors this email address and responds to most feedback, but definitely takes all feedback to this email alias seriously.
Your initial email to the alias will result in an auto-reply, but will generally be followed up later on by a “real” person. However, the auto-reply now has an interesting line item. Here’s what you’ll get in return (but, notice the last line in the reply…I’ve highlighted it in red):
