Thanks for you help with this, everyone.
I've put the filters
/out of office/i
/out of the office/i
in taboo headers and taboo body and the tests I've tried seem to work.
I'm not sure though how to work out which headers to quote to >> trap error

Good point. With Reply-To: <list>, it is VITAL that filtering takes place.
RegEx's on the taboo header and body are your friend. Filter out "out of
office" and the like.
Also, attempt to trap error messages sent to the list-posting address, which
can also cause mailing loops. They tend to quote back all the headers, so I
filter for a quoted header unique to the list.
