all people?  never.   You can only do so much education before you
have to give up.   The real solution is to fix bad email clients.   A
proper email client, or vacation subsystem, should never send an ooo
response to an email that doesn't contain the users address in To: or
Cc:.   It's all really pretty simple, yet getting email vendors to
implement this is just as futile as trying to get everyone to properly
set auto replies.
