I see where you're coming from, but it won't work.

Most lists (MailScanner is an exception) show the sender address as the
original sender, so I need a rule which works on TO and not FROM.

What does that have to do with it?  If you are using Exchange and
Outlook your Out of Office reply is sent from Exchange not Outlook
itself.  So if you tell exchange to not send a reply to a SMTP receipent
then it will not be sent out to the internet.
