Please tell me you didn't get a Out of office reply.
I'd just finished setting it up when you mailed.
If you didn't them i'm sorted.
Using Padraig's rule, seems to work with outlook 98.
(if ilug at domain linux.ie in CC: || ilug at domain linux.ie in TO:)
out off office is probably the only thing they got right.

IMHO, the problem is usually badly written out-of-office programs.
Most of them are badly written, and most of their users can't tell.
If your o-o-o program:
- Sends to the Return-path: (instead of From:)
- Ignores messages with Precedence: bulk and Precedence: junk
- Replies only once per address
you're *probably* alright, and if you can
- Set it to ignore messages from X, Y and Z list
- Set it to retain some context for the replied message
(e.g. Subject, Message-id, message contents)
you're *definitely* alright.
If you violate any of the above, you're liable to send messages to
the wrong people, confuse them, and|or start mail loops.
Now, anyone else like to suggest how to implement the above?
