Re: Vacation Message

You folks are getting an OOF ("Out Of Office" reply), and I will get when
this guy's mail server gets this piece of email.  It's set on the guy's mail
server, and it would be a security hole if someone else could logon and
change his settings and read his mail while he's gone.  The guy *might* give
his assistant his email password, but it's unlikely in a corporation.

I can definitely say it's NOT a virus and it's not meant to be spam mail...
Just be glad the Steph setup RC so that the OOF doesn't get broadcast to
everyone for every message sent.  I have seen this happen at my workplace.
It was called "Bedlam 1.0" when that happened, and they made t-shirts about
it. ;-)  Made all of my company's mail servers worldwide very, very unhappy.
