auto Server replies

By mark the phone man ·
I am trying to set up a automatic reply to all messages sent to a dist group , using a set message that is stored on the server. We are using exchange server 5.5 SP4 with Outlook 2000.
I have a rule setup that works for all internal users, However when someone outside our email domain sends a messga ethey do not get the reply. I CC'd myself on the message that is stored on the server and I get the reply , and the email shows it going to the original sender. However it never gets there. Any suggestions?

Hey Mark, just a thought ........

you could try creating a new public folder and temporarily give it the users' SMTP address while you want the auto-replies sent. You could then use the script you found for Public Folders.

If this fits the bill we should be in good shape!. If not let me know and I can provide some more ideas!. Thx
