The field $AssistMail maps to the NotesDocument.SentByAgent property.  The OOOA ignores such messages.

If you like, take a copy of the OOOA, monkey it a bit to process only the message in question, and run it in the foregorund through the debugger,  You can then see why it made the decision to skip the message,.
It depends who actually 'sends' the workflow message.  If it's an automatic message, sent by the server, the server will receive an OOO.


That is, if you have a mailfile defined for mail addressed to the server (I normally haven't got that, and just drop that mail)

Check if the mail sent from the application has this field "RecNoOutOfOffice" set to  "1" in the mail memo?

If that field is set then the OOO agent will consider it as not to reply and ignore...

This mail is coming from a database and is based on the actions of the current user. The from field has the person who sent it name.

"RecNoOutOfOffice is not in the memo document info
What about this:?

$Mailer means it's sent by an agent.

If mail is sent through an agent, it's the agent's signer that is the sender and thus gets the OOO-reply.
For regular mail responses, you can use the ReplyTo field to redirect replies to the current user. I don't know if the same applies for OOO agent.

I guess you could try to set the ReplyTo field to the name of the current user (define the field as a names field BTW)

If it is sent by a script is that considered an agent

On whose credential it ran !! That is the person who gets OOO reply

Is this script from an action button. In this case it's the user that executes the code from the button that should get the OOO reply.

O wait, Hemanth already kind of said that :-)
