Be aware that doing this is equivalent to saying 'hey guys, my house is unoccupied - come and help yourselves'.

As VoG wrote------take care-------better too many emails against an empty home

Who is your ISP?

PlusNet, for example, allow you to redirect your email to another email address of your choice.

Maybe worth looking into...

Another problem with out of office is, it will reply to spam confirming you e-mail address.

Don`t redirect your e-mails - use web based mail to read them from wherever you are.

For those of you who fancy a laugh, a couple of years ago I was going away for a week, so I set my office e-mail to re-direct my mails to my home. A couple of days later I was due to fly out and set my home e-mail to 'out of office'. Doh! My home system and the office just kept e-mailing each other, so I found upon my return that my mail quota had very quickly reached it's limit with 'out of office' replys!

could that be called "self-spamming " perhaps::))
