Subj:   Re: Wish
From:   John Hall

I whole heartedly agree!

You probably don't know it, but I get all error messages including the Out of Office replies (OOReplies). In administrating the TDATA-L List, I have to check all error messages to make sure that things are being handled correctly and since I can't depend completely on the Subj: line, I sample many of the OOReplies to be sure that I'm not missing something. So not only can I get hundreds of them over the day, I read many of them as well.

The OOReplies are pretty much working within the standards defined by the Internet Mail Consortium (www.imc.org). Some e-mail clients are more compliant than others. Some clients are pretty basic in how they generate the OOReply, others are more sophisticated. Then there's the matter of how the person has set-up their OOReply rules. There is a tremendous amount of variation and there doesn't seem to be any catch-all answer.

What has worked for me is that I created a folder for such mail and I created rules to move the various flavours of OOReplies to that folder.

I realize that it isn't the real answer for your wish, but it's better than a lump of coal.
