How can one set "Out of Office" in Outlook without also sending replies to
all the SPSS posts?
I think that if you set "I am currently Out of the Office" but leave the
message field blank it does not send a reply, so you won't bother listers.
So you can then set the 2 rules below.
The first moves SPSS List messages (To: SPSSX-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU) to a
folder, and you check the box for "Do not process subsequent rules".
The second (which SPSS messages should thus never reach) sends a reply to
any messages addressed directly to you - or copied to you, or what you will.
Insert text and subject in a Template as you would have put in the standard
Out Of Office reply.
I can see a disadvantage, that a person emailing you more than once would
probably get more than one reply saying you're out. Ah, well, nothing's
perfect. And if they don't learn from the first reply not to email you,
they will probably put up with all the others.
All the best,
