RE: Moderator Policy re: Out-of-office responses

Once you turn it on, you are essentially alerting anyone
who sends e-mail to you that you are not there.  And since the typical
out-of-office reply 
gives juicy info like where you are, who to contact, and when you will
be back.

This is why I never use OoO messages, either in email or VM. I don't
know what book it was
but it did cover this as a security topic, one of the only ones I've
ever read to cover it.
It went into more of if you're users have to use OoO what to put in
them, etc.
