I am not sure how much control  some e-mail apps/servers give you over 
auto-replies-  Exchange 2007/Outlook 2007 lets you set a separate reply 
for internal vs external senders, and lets you restrict external 
responses to only senders in your address book.

You can of course create a custom wizard to send replies to all users 
with specific exceptions.

My own solution was to use my gmail acct and NOT use my work e-mail for 
most list subscriptions- that way I can limit Out of Office replies 
strictly to work related e-mail (and therefore to people who actually 
care if I am out of the office or not.)
