Out Of Office replies need to be set so that you can choose to send to only external users. In most smaller companies, it is not necessary have internal OOF replies, but very useful for external mail. Currently, you can set to send OOF to internal but not external users, why not external but not internal users?

OOFs are only issued once to each address - a sender will only get one OOF back until its turned off and back on, no matter how many messages they send - so it won't cause an annoying flood of OOF messages.




It's easier (in outlook) to block internet messages than it is to allow them and block internal ones. Also note that security is a concern at many companies and they don't allow OOF off the network - this is set on the Exchange server. (It might be possible in Ex2007/2010 to turn off OOF mail but keep mailtips - i haven't looked at the cmdlets for it.)
