And that's another thing--these people who set up "out of the office"
messages but don't either unsubscribe or set "no mail" on their discussion

Actually taxacom's settings work to our advantage in this case.  "Out of the
office" messages that reach a whole list can set up reverberations that
rapidly fill your box (each "out of the office" that goes to a list also
goes to the person who sent the original message, thus triggering another
one).  I haven't had this happen in a few years, so I suspect that most
servers have a way of filtering such messages.....?
