How to stop replies from a delegate out of office reply


I have a user who is a delegate for many people in the organistaion.  When she sets her out of office reply, it of course sends auto-responses to people who sent invites etc to the people she is a delegate of.

Is there a simple way to turn this off?

It's too hard to get people to take her out oftheir delagte list (as they will forget to put her back in).

Some people have mentioned setting up a RULE, but I could't quite see which criteria would work for this.

We are using Outlook 2003 with Exchange Server 2007.

I have figursed this one out myself. Perseverence ;-)

For anyone intersted, the rule I sent up was:
Check messages they arrive
Where I am NOT in the TO field
Or is a message invite
Do not process any further rules
Then turned on Out of Office
I have a similar issue, but the user is not actually set up as a delegate, rather just has Publishing Editor permissions. I think this automatically grants send-on-behalf rights, however since she's not a delegate, the meeting requests shouldn't ever actually hit her inbox so I don't think this rule would work. Also, this evidently just recently started happening because she's been a secretary in this department for years.
