: ooo, out of office, delivery options

We currently have the option to 'not receive out of office' notices in the delivery options of an email. It doesn't work very well, but the concept is good.
I would also like to have an option of 'Do not deliver to recipients who are currently out of office'. I frequently have to send out 'all staff' type emails that contain information that is immediately valid or only valid for a short space of time. I always feel its a little unfair that recipients who are out of the office should receive these when they are not relevant to them.
You would also need options as a recipient to over-ride this if you so choose.

You perhaps could consider to use Notes client broadcast or Sametime broadcast messages. They would appear for logged-in users only.

Using Group Technologies' iq.Suite you can do something like that.
