Problem

When I'm on vacation, I'd like to send auto-replies only to my co-workers in the office.

Solution

When auto-replying to emails while on vacation, I set up a rule for the users that does not reply to addresses that contain "*@*.*" . This prevents auto replies to any addresses that have an @ symbol, which is anything outside of the office.

This assumes that your internal company addresses are not using the "@" character in e-mail addresses.
