I have a Windows 2000 SBS, Exchange, and users with outlook 2002.
How can I create autoresponder for a user, without need of leaving his system and outlook on while he is away.

create an out of office message.It will only be sent once to each person
no matter how many emails they send to that mailbox.

thanks, but it is not working.

Since I have exchange, "Out of office Assistance" is enabled, and when I set it up, it works only for people on my LAN. But when I send email from a Hotmail or yahoo account to this address, I do not get respond. Where on exchange or Outlook I can set this.

Ok that is simple.exchange will send oof for inside ur domain without any aditional confuguration.For it to work for outside ur domain
go to ESM\global settings\internet message format\default prperties page\advanced and check six bottom boxes(if they are not against ur company policy)which will come handy.The first are directly related to ur problem.
