Clif, 'Please ask whoever configures your responders to add a check for the header "Precedence: list" and do not respond to those messages.'
LOL You don't use MS Exchange / Outlook, do you Clif? If you work for an organisation that uses these products, i.e. most of the world, you simply don't have that kind of control. There's an 'Out of Office Rules Wizard' which allows you to send the message you see on the list, one to each email address that sends you a message. The alternatives are to set up your very own OoO rules, which is much more difficult that the idiot Wizard, or to unsubscribe from the list, then re-subscribe when you get back from leave. Personally, I think it would be better if your mail server just dropped any message with a subject containing " is out of the office", when the subject does not contain "[ADMIN]". Yes I know it's an ambulance at the bottom rather than a fence at the top of the cliff, but ...
