Rules in exchange server 2000

I have setup a distributiuon group on my server and added two users to it who will receive emails from that address.

I would like to setup a rule that replies to the emails sent to the distribution group with a standard email which shows that the email is sent from the distribution group and not the users within the group.  Currently i've used outlook rule wizard to reply to the emails but the senders address is the user within the group instead of the the group itself.

I am using windows 2000, exchange 2000 and outlook 2000.

Is there a better way?

I hope this message is clear enough.  THANKS FOR THE HELP!

This behaviour is by design.

As I have understood your question, you want to have something like an autoresponder?

What you can do is the following:

Setup a group with you receipients as members
Setup a dummy user and mailbox
Logon as this dummy user and setup an "out of office" rule. Respond to all incoming mails with a default answer mail (this mail is send from the dummy account) and forward the mails to the group. Alternatively, you can setup the dummy mailbox to foward all incoming mails to the group.

Nevertheless, if one of the real group members answers to a mail, sent to the dummy account, the real users address is show as the senders address. To avoid this, this can setup your dummy account to allow the group members to send mails "in the name of" the dummy account. Additionally, you can activate the FROM filed within outlook and the answering user can then change the senders address to the name of the dummy account.

As discussed in other threats here, it seams to be, that there is no other option to do it with EX2K. Note that the behaviour of EX5.5 was different.
