What email client are you using? Almost every client I have ever used have some kind of rule processing ability.

Outlook 2000 does have e-mail rules.

To do what you want, you need to create a form template to reply with.

Templates are created under the outlook menus "Tools, Forms, Design a Form"

Once you have created the form, Open one of the e-mails.

Go to Actions, Create Rule.

Use mail sent from this person. click next, select Reply using specific template.

Click on specific template in the bottom box. Then assign the outlook template you have created.

Now when messages arrive from that person an automatic reply is sent each time the mail is recv'ed.

You can set message filters on the Exchange server. I am assuming you are using Exchange 2k, if not let me know. If you are follow these steps.

1.Start System Manager, and double-click Global Settings.
2. Right-click Message Delivery, and choose Properties.
3. Add the address you would like to filter. Example Exwife@domain.com
4. Click OK.

A non-delivery report is automatically generated and sent to the sender. Unless you selected Accept Messages Without Notifying Sender Of Filtering.

Hope this helps.

Oh yeah forgot a step. You have to apply the filter to a virtual server.

1. In System Manager double-click Servers or, if administrative groups are enabled, double-click the administrative group that contains the server you want to work with.
2. Expand the entry for the server you want to work with, and then expand Protocols, SMTP, and SMTP Virtual Servers.
3. Right-click the SMTP virtual server on which you want to filter messages, and then choose Properties.
4. In the General tab, click Advanced.
5. In the Advanced dialog box, select the IP address you want to filter, and then click Edit.
6. Select Apply Filter, and then click OK.
