That would be foolish. Some of us are indeed stuck with having to use
Outlook, and being mandated by work to enable out of office replies, even
if we're out for only a day.

Sure, I can spend ten minutes every time to set up a whole raft of special
rules that mimic out of office, or unsubscribe and later resubscribe to lists,
but certainly not going to do it each and every time I have to unexpectedly
take a day off...

Surely there are some things that can also be set up on the list side of things?
Checking for particular email headers or something?
