This is pretty easy to do if using Outlook by simply creating an "Out of
Office" rule.


1.  Open the "Out-of-office" assistant under the "Tools" Menu

2.  Make sure the "AutoReply only once to each sender with the following
text" text box is empty

3.  Select the "Add Rule" option

4.  In the window, put in the addresses of mailing lists and people you
don't want to autoreply to in the   "Sent To" section (i.e.
gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx). Then click the "Advanced" button and select "Only
items that do not match these conditions", click OK to close the
advanced window.

5.  In the "Perform these actions" box, select "Reply" and check on the
template button. Type in a short    message that you wish to use as your
out-of-office notification.

6.  Click OK, and make sure the "I am currently out of the office"
option is set when you are actually away.

Hi Folks-


Just a quick note to the GPTalk list. If you are subscribed to the list
from an email system that supports Out of Office notifications, please
turn off sending of those notifications to the list, so that folks
posting here don't get barraged with everyone's vacation notices J.


I'm pretty sure that if you are running Exchange, you can choose to
selectively not send OoO notices to external addresses and that would be
much welcome.
