In Exchange Server 5.0 (SP2) I have setup a distribution list (i.e. support@domain_name.com) of which several Exchange mailboxes are a part of.  I would like senders to this distribution list to receive an automated mail message that their query is being dealt with.  How do I do this?

You can use the Rules Wizard.  The rules would state that when a certain message arrives, containg whatever words you are looking for, send this message.  It's very easy to do, start the rules wizard and try it.

Thanks for your quick response...

I know all about the Rules Wizard for a mailbox user using Outlook.  But what about for a distribution list?  I want the 'from' field to be from the distrubtion list alias i.e. support@domian_name.com and not from a specific user.

Any ideas.

Well, The ditribution list is not a mailbox, but you could create a mailbox give it a display name similar to your distribution list, put this mailbox in the distribution list,  give yourself ownership of the account, log into it and setup the rules.

You can also make the name not visable to users.

I will try what you suggested and let you know if it works the way I want it to work.

Is there no other way of doing this?
