I have a client that requires the ability to send an automated reply to all messages recieved to a certain mailbox.

Currently the client uses Exchange 5.5 Server with a Outlook 97 client. Does anyone know an easier solution?  other than the following: -

Install Outlook 2000 and setup a local rule, to use a template message. Unfortunately the client does not want the mailbox to be online all of the time. Is it possible to do this from the exchange server?

Is there a reason not to use the Out of Office Assistant to automatically reply for you?

You can either:

1. Set up the rule to be server-side, that is, have the rule run from the server. That way the client does not have to be running. Or,

2. Use a 3rd party app like Mail Essentials.

This is the conclusion we had come to anyway. However we have decided to go with a server rule which will use a template so we don't have to upgrade outlook from 98 to 2000.

Thanks
