Thanks for the reply.  I'd handle it differently (and a lot less
conveniently), but I can see now where you're coming from.  It's just
that my hatred of OoO messages is so great that I'll do pretty much
anything to avoid using them (or allowing them to be used.)  A few
months ago, one of my users set up his email client to autoreply with a
nice message, sent a test message to himself from the /same account/ and
left for vacation without bothering to check the results of his test. 
Moments later, my mail log started scrolling madly...  (sigh)  Of
course, this is far from the first time that such antics have caused me

Did I mention that I despise OoO messages?
