Filtering out of office until next year

Alto Xeno

After seeing the auto-post from Ann saying shewill be out of the office until January 2009, I decided to make some changes in my email. I use Gmail to read this list, so used a filter to dispose of those messages. For any of you using Gmail on this list and unfamiliar with the filter options, here's a quick "how to" -

1. In the Options area, put "out of the office" (including the quotation marks) into the Has the words: field. Click on Next Step
2. Check Skip the Inbox, Delete it, and Also apply filter to ### conversations below
3. Click on Create Filter

That will cause all messages with that exact phrase to be automatically deleted each time you log in to the list. If you are not sure you want to do that, then in step 2 instead of Delete it check Apply Filter and use the drop-down box to (a) choose the New filter option and (b) give your filter a name (which will become a folder on the left of your Gmail screen after you take step 3).

Can someone not just boot anyone from the list with an auto-responder.  They can re-sign up when they re-turn.  It is just totally idiotic to put an auto responder on an email account that you use for maillists.... or to use your main office email for maillists.

Hi LInda,

That's a bit harsh don't you think? I use Second Life for work. I
subscribe to SLED to get information useful for my job. As such, I
get SLED at my main office e-mail address. Eudora nicely filters all
SLED content  into it's own mailbox and I keep track of it there.

I have other accounts for non work stuff - but I get my work related
e-mail at work.

I was with you right up to the ‘or to use your main office email for maillists’. Harsh, but fair, I thought. The problem a lot of people on this list have is that they use their work email addresses precisely because:

 

a) they want to (which is absolutely fine, I reckon)

b) most (all) of their SL work is exactly that – work

 

And – as an aggravating side issue - their institutions (for some reason or other) oblige them to use auto-responders when they are going to be out of the office for more than twelve minutes.

 

In the good old days etiquette demanded that if you were to be away, you either unsubbed for that period, or set your sub to ‘nomail’ if that were possible. These days that doesn’t seem to happen, so we end up with the kind of thing we’re seeing now where it’s holiday time in the Northern Hemisphere. We doctors call this ‘annoyensis Kiptolia’, after its biggest proponent.

 

What’s interesting is that as teachers we often suggest to our learners that listening to the odd instruction occasionally and taking logical suggestions on board are good skills, yet we’re singularly unable to adhere to what we preach very well at all.

 

I am going on holiday this Saturday for eleven days. I am quite happy to set an auto-responder if it will fill the quiet hours of August for somebody, but probably I’ll just let the mail filter in and deal with it when I get back. However, please don’t let the absence of the auto-responder deter you from dropping around to my place and stealing the cat…

RE: Filtering out of office until next year

Bray, Michael
In reply to this post by Douglas Danforth
Ditto what Dan said: I receive SLED correspondence on my work email account as well. MS Outlook 97 now allows you to write rules around your auto-responder (Out of Office Assistant). Presumably one such rule could prevent the Auto Responder from sending response emails back to specific emails (say, if the incoming email had "[SLED]" in the subject line, for instance). But for the life of me, I cannot find a rule that would satisfy this desired outcome (rule interface is non-intuitive and difficult to test). It's my fault for having limited time to research the potential more fully.

If anyone out there has addressed and solved this for us Outlook 97 users I'd love to know how it's done! <grins appreciatively then decides it looks creepy and nods appreciatively instead.>

RE: Filtering out of office until next year

In reply to this post by Linda Rogers

Being retired, I enjoy the luxury of having no “work-related” reason for being in SL or on the SLED list. I would guess, though, that many (most?)  people on this list are here for professional reasons, so it makes sense to use office e-mail. I detest auto-responders, though, and cannot understand for the life of me why any campus would require people to use them. Still, it happens <sigh>.  If you find yourself in that unfortunate situation and will be gone for more than a few days, I agree that the only polite thing to do is to leave the SLED list and then re-join when you return. It’s a nuisance, but at least it’s only a nuisance for you and not 6,000 other people.

I second what Rolig said, and would add...

If you cant be bothered to unsubscribe from a list where 100's or
1000's of people see your out of office message, then perhaps you wont
mind if 10's of us email your boss and ask for your auto responder to
be turned off ;)

RE: How many subscribers to SLED?

Rolig
Well, OK, I was probably a bit generous with my totally unsubstantiated
estimate of 6,000. Now that you have prompted me to look, Javier, I find
that last August 10, the number was 3,777 and growing at a healthy pace.
(See
https://lists.secondlife.com/pipermail/educators/2007-August/013067.html). I
imagine that Claudia or Pathfinder can provide a more current number.
Meanwhile, I'll start a pool by making an **official** guess that it's
4,100. That's still a lot of people to annoy with your autoresponder.

In reply to this post by Rolig
For two weeks I was on vacation. For two weeks I enabled my
auto-responder, waiting for the onslaught of SLEDers complaining. I
tested the auto-response with my personal email; it worked. Several
co-workers received auto-responses from me. This list did not receive a
single auto-response from me.

This is an issue of Systems Administrators not setting up a proper
auto-responder for their clients. I talked to my email SysAdmin; he said
they use Procmail with a "recipe" that prevents lists from getting an
auto-response. If you are one of the victims of rampant auto-responses,
talk to your email SysAdmin. Ask them to configure the auto-response
system to not respond to lists. There is enough information on the
Google-inter-web that anyone smart enough to run an email system ought
to be able to implement a proper auto-responder.

Peace,
Sean

Not all mail servers do server-side auto response. Often this is handled client-side.   Even in our system which is server based, there is a fair amount of configuration in the mail client.

Well I apologize if I sounded harsh, what I feel is exasperated.  This is a fairly computer literate group so there ought to be a little accountability for spamming the list with auto-responders. (Perhaps the "walk of shame")
 
Some good solutions have been suggested.

"Can someone not just boot anyone from the list with an auto-responder.  They can re-sign up when they re-turn.  It is just totally idiotic to put an auto responder on an email account that you use for maillists.... or to use your main office email for maillists."


I was with you right up to the 'or to use your main office email for maillists'. Harsh, but fair, I thought. The problem a lot of people on this list have is that they use their work email addresses precisely because:

 

a) they want to (which is absolutely fine, I reckon)

b) most (all) of their SL work is exactly that – work

 

And – as an aggravating side issue - their institutions (for some reason or other) oblige them to use auto-responders when they are going to be out of the office for more than twelve minutes.

 

In the good old days etiquette demanded that if you were to be away, you either unsubbed for that period, or set your sub to 'nomail' if that were possible. These days that doesn't seem to happen, so we end up with the kind of thing we're seeing now where it's holiday time in the Northern Hemisphere. We doctors call this 'annoyensis Kiptolia', after its biggest proponent.

 

What's interesting is that as teachers we often suggest to our learners that listening to the odd instruction occasionally and taking logical suggestions on board are good skills, yet we're singularly unable to adhere to what we preach very well at all.

 

I am going on holiday this Saturday for eleven days. I am quite happy to set an auto-responder if it will fill the quiet hours of August for somebody, but probably I'll just let the mail filter in and deal with it when I get back. However, please don't let the absence of the auto-responder deter you from dropping around to my place and stealing the cat…

 

Gavin

International Working Group

Robinson, Paulette

Dear SLED members,

I'm currently a research assistant at the National Defense University assisting with the international working group of the Federal Consortium for Virtual Worlds. I am looking for any information on how governments or governmental agencies outside of the United States are exploring the potential of virtual worlds. Information on international organizations, such as the United Nations and European Union, is also welcome. We are interested in establishing new relationships and broadening the membership of the consortium and working group. Thank you.

Sincerely,

David Arocho

RE: International Working Group

Check Second Sweden and the sims in its neighborhood. I can’t get in world easily right now to give you a proper SLURL, but I believe that’s where the Swedish embassy is. You can also just try a search, of course.

Now that I think of it, I believe that the Greek government also has a presence in SL. Try the Greece Official sim (again, I believe that’s the right name), or do a search in your Map view.

There are countries, regions, cities and towns represented on SL supported by government, tourism boards and others.Here are a few: embassies - Maldives, Sweden, Estonia; cities & regions - Iowa, Dublin, Munich, Galveston, Barcelona, Bruges, Zurich; Tourism Boards - Ireland, Netherlands, Greece, Scotland, England.

I have a tourism destinations quest which lists what I have found including SLURLs which I can send you if you write me off list.
