I've had to stop martin at aejent.co.uk from receiving anything from the list due 
to the spate of stupid Out-of-office auto-responses that this list member's 
mail system has been producing this morning.

Needless to say, I can't think of any reason why anyone on the list would want 
to receive these (for non-personal emails on the list) so let's not have any 
more, eh?

I'll have a quick look at the posts and see if I can get formulate some 
constructive advice for our members on how to properly manage their 
out-of-office features for their MTA. 

The NLUG mailman system was about to disable the account automatically due to 
the number of bounces it received so this would have stopped on its own after 
a few dozen more annoying auto-responses. I'd prefer if people don't use such 
things but I do see their merits - I received hundreds of these over Xmas but 
them I am on dozens of lists!
