    Set Delivery Options to deliver message to both forwarding address and mailbox (checkbox right below the Forward to:)

  • This should work with a rule configurable with Outlook.  When you say that it did not work, what rule settings did you have?

     

    Here are some instructions (for Oultook 2000, but should also work with 2003).

  • That will be because automatic replies to the Internet are disabled in your Global Settings:

  • Configure Outlook 2007 for the account that you want to use Auto-Reply feature on.  In Outlook client go to Tools, Rules and Alerts.  Click on New Rule, under Start from blank rule choose Check messages when they arrive and hit Next.  Choose what you need in there and hit Next again.  Choose have server reply using a specific message and click on a specific message link.  Type in desired subject and message.  Hit Finish and you are set to go. 

    Note: We have Exchange 2007 SP1, have not tested it on Exchange 2003.

  • We have a rule setup exactly as described in Anatoliy's post in Ex2007 SP1 and it doesn't work. We just converted from GroupWise.

     

    A client-only rule works but not the server rule. We are choosing subject line contains a certain word. Any ideas?

  • Did you check Event Log?  Try creating a brand-new account in EX07.  Could have been something with conversion.  Then, if it works match two accounts, converted from GroupWise and created in EX07.  Or call Microsoft.  I think it's $240.00 per incident.

  • Anatoliy Gontar's suggestion works fine on our Exchange 2007 SP1 set using Outlook 2007.  Just be sure to avoid conditional logic that requires that the rule be client-side rather than a server-side rule.

  • Hi everybody.

    I have a twist to the question.

    We have a former employee, whom we cannot delete, but have on our 2003 Exchange server, set Delivery options to Forward to.... another user.

    This works fine, but it means the autoreply set up in the user's mail account, doesn't work, as the mail doesn't get that far, but gets Forwarded prior to reaching the mailbox.

    Any ideas?

    Regards,

    Tonni

  • I suggest to have a look at the article about setting up Autoresponders on MS Exchange Server.

  • That's about buying a third-party product to setup Autoresponders in Exchange.

  • This way though,

    It costs money.

    Anyway to do it for free ?
