Autosending a message

In Outlook 2000 I am trying to autosend a message announcing I will be out of the office for the rest of the week.

I have created a template (New Mail Message/Save As Template) containing the text I want.  I then created my rule that says:

Apply this rule after message arrives
Where my name is in the To or Cc box
reply using c:\...\OutOfOffice.oft

The path is correct and the oft file does exist.

I then tested this to make sure it works and it doesn't.  I receive a reply, but it is a blank page (not even my signature).

What am I doing wrong?

Your template must be in plain text.

Cliff, this works for me.  I'm wondering a couple of things.  What type of email message is your template (plain text, HTML, RTF).  Mine was plain text, and it worked just fine.

Actually, Cliff, I tried early to use an HTML template as well, and it too worked just fine.  The email came back as plain text though.

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you, but me email provider has been challenged lately...

I'm sorry but I must reject your answer.  It is correct, but Neo_mvps gave the correct answer first.

That worked!

Strange that templated must be in plain text, though.

Thanks for your help.
