Please try the following procedures (OUTLOOK 98.)

Automatically reply to incoming messages while out of the office

1      On the Tools menu, click Out of Office Assistant.
2      Click I am currently Out of the Office.
3      In the AutoReply only once to each sender with the following text box, type the message you want to send to others while you are out.

Any question, please let me know.

Just be aware that depending on the settings that your Exchange Admin created, you might not be able to send an Out Of Office reply to internet users, just other Exchange users.

Slalom,

If the Exchange Admin doesn't allow that option, then there's nothing you can do. The only alternative might be for you to create a rule on your own which auto-replys to messages, but then you'd respond to every message that comes in, and for things like mailing lists, that's unacceptable.

You should speak with the Exchange Admin at your site to discuss with them if you have a legitimate need that they could address.

David,

I have the same problem with Slalom, our Exchange Server is already configured so we can said mail to internet users. The problem is, creating a rule to automatically forward to internet users do not work. It seems like it is a bug.
