Rename vacation rule to out of office rule

I like vacations and vacation rules. But many times I am "out of office". It's easier to explain to common users.

and being english we do not use the term "vacation" out of office is more universal.

They could retain "Vacation Rule" and just add another option that is similar and call it "Out of Office Rule".

I agree that a name change is appropriate. The purpose of such a rule is to notify senders that the recipient is unavailable. S/he may be on vacation, or on a holiday, or out of the office but there are other situations to consider.

Many people no longer work in an office and some office workers prefer to respond to email at specific times, for example, first thing in the morning or at the end of the day. Many of us expect an email response from certain recipients the same day or even within a few hours and if that can't happen a notification might be appropriate.

I suggest the name be changed to: recipient unavailable.
