Re: Where is my office?

Back in the '70s, I had a user who was going on holiday with his girlfriend from a different company. His girlfriend had put an 'away from office' message on her email. The guy did as well before leaving for two weeks in the sun and sending an email to the girlfriend saying that he was just leaving.

When he got back, his inbox was full of 'Re:Away from office - Just leaving' messages, 'Re:Re:Re:' etc. received every few seconds.

I soon replaced the POA with one that recognised replies replies to replies anf ignored them.
