How do I bounce emails back to sender when I am out of office

We all run into the problem when we are out of office that the emails still pile up.  Then when we get back there is a stack of hundreds of emails.
The Out of Office assistant doesn't really help at all.  It just tells the sender that you are out.  The sender's email still comes through along with any additional ones they want to send.  Is there a way maybe by a rule that you can have emails be returned to sender while you are out of office and not have them sit in your inbox?

    The only way I think you can do that is switching on your quotas to full if you have Exchange but this is not professional, why would you want to do that?
