Re: [WSG] Who are the Away on leave Notices from? [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

 but the point of IT is to make life easier. So it is the responsibility of
 the OOON setter to make heir OOON not mailstorm their lists and add more
 email to the already massive amount mail servers have to deal with.

 No to mention, this discussion would then be filtered out, so you wouldn't
 have been able to participate in this discussion.

 I believe in stopping the waste at source (conservation) over trying to fix
 it further down the line (recycling) as it is less work and a lighter load
 that way.

That is all true, however… there will always be someone who
forgets/does not know how to
set up ooon properly - and no policies will save from that, so the
only effective way to
get rid of this kind of messages is to configure the mailing list
software to take care of it.

Of all the lists I am subscribed to WSG is the only one where these
messages get through.
I guess there are valid reasons why this is this way, but if it is
fixable on ML side
that would be a welcome change indeed.

Regards,
Rimantas

While I agree they can be annoying, they are quite a useful thing for normal
circumstances.

 

They are generally set up by the person who owns the email address
(sometimes by their network admin etc).

 

Basically say if you were going away for 2 weeks, but didn't want people
thinking you were ignoring them (handy for work etc) you would set up the
auto responder with that message.

 

That's about it..

 

Hope that helps.

From members, Brett. And, yes, it's an annoying, on-going issue. I do wish 
those emails could somehow be flagged. This is the only mailing list I 
belong to where I get those so I suspect it is solvable.


Sorry to all for exacerbating the problem by replying, but Brett's question 
was legit and it gave me an opportunity to give my opinion about this 
persistent issue.

If you're using outlook just set up a rule. Something like...

Where the subject line contains out of the office or autoreply then move it 
to (trash or junk mail or a subfolder)

THREAD CLOSED

1. the issue is something we are aware of. The entire mail system will soon
be changing so this issue will no longer be present. Please be patient.

2. We have just had 13 people complain about it, on list, which has created
more noise than the last month of real away on leave emails.

3. Any issues/suggestions you have, we would love to hear them - but not on
list. Email offlist - [EMAIL PROTECTED]

can we ask all Out of Office notification users to set their notices  
to only do this once per address per week (so repeated emails do not  
generate a mailstorm) rather than for each email received or perhaps  
get the mailing list itself to try and filter out the out of office  
replies. I agree it is disconcerting.

Of course OOOR notices are important but it is a trivial matter to set  
a list of addresses or domains this notice does not affect OR to send  
the OOOR to each email address only once in a week, so the sender  
knows you're out but does not have to receive your notice everyday.

Re: [WSG] Who are the Away on leave Notices from? [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

2008-11-05 Thread Joe Ortenzi
but the point of IT is to make life easier. So it is the  
responsibility of the OOON setter to make heir OOON not mailstorm  
their lists and add more email to the already massive amount mail  
servers have to deal with.


No to mention, this discussion would then be filtered out, so you  
wouldn't have been able to participate in this discussion.


I believe in stopping the waste at source (conservation) over trying  
to fix it further down the line (recycling) as it is less work and a  
lighter load that way.

Just auto replies from list members away on leave (who have set

It is annoying, but in saying that I'm probably guilty of it at  
times ;)

Re: [WSG] Who are the Away on leave Notices from?

2008-11-05 Thread Dave Lane
Looking at list message headers, I see that it mentions Precedence:
list as do most widely used list managers like the open source
Majordomo and Mailman systems.  Other lists use Precedence: bulk.
According to RFC 3834, the Precedence header field is strictly not
recommended, but says that autoresponders (e.g.
out-of-office-notification (ooon) systems) may choose not to respond.

Smart ooon systems (like the open source vacation autoresponder
available on any Linux/UNIX server) don't send ooons to lists or other
bulk mail senders that identify themselves as such using the Precedence
header field, as it's more or less universally undesirable to do so
(just like the use of return receipts for list posts).

Unfortunately, it's clear that many subscribers on this list don't use
ooon services that recognise the list designation - perhaps they can
raise their games (especially given that the software required is
completely free for them to use).

Apparently even Microsoft Exchange is smart enough to avoid sending ooon
to messages flagged with the Precedence: bulk or list.  A brief survey
of Google indicates that Lotus Domino mail may not be, however...  not
sure about other widely used mail systems.

Regards,

Dave
