The hilarious lingo of Exchange folks

Posted by Bharat Suneja at 6:27 PM
The lingo used by most Exchange folks is hilarious - and I include myself in this. Just got an email from someone in the product team that goes "Sorry, I was OOF.... " :)

OOF stands for Out Of Office, derived from Microsoft Outlook/Exchange's functionality of being able to set up Out Of Office messages. I frequently use that term myself, but sitting here on a Friday evening I can't help but think how this comes across to folks not familiar with this terminology.

Actually the original acronym was for "Out Of Facility".

For another cute one, Google the term "little-r me"

Knew what little-r meant without having to Google it... :)

However, OOF did lead me to Ewan Dalton's post on the team blog from 7/12/2004 - Why is OOF an OOF and not an OOO?
