Exchange Out of Office Assistant / Sending messages on someones behalf.

I have a few questions about how Outlook 2000/2003 will react in certain situations when used with Exchange 2003.  Here are the situations I'm wondering about:

1) If two people both have the Out of Office Assistant turned on and one of them sends the other one an E-mail do you end up with an endless loop of mails between the two?  I don't think it would fill up their mailboxes but I don't now for sure.

2) If Donna asks Sue to send out a meeting notice and she does so with the “Donna” id and email…. Will responses go back to Sue… or will they come to Donna ??  (The names are not relevent here but it's heard to explain w/o names.)

I'm just seeking clarification on these.

OOTO - as long as the user's have used the official out of office menu item and not created an auto reply message then a loop will not be created. OOTO is sent once per sender.

For the meeting requests - if they have been sent from Donna's ID then they will go back to Donna. Has something made you think otherwise?

No, I figured that what you said would be the correct answer, but I'm not experienced in Exchange in the slightest.  I was just seeking clarification.
