instead of "have server reply using remove(the template for message)"
try "reply using remove(the template for message)"
unless you have to have it running when when outlook is closed.

What version of exchange?
Have you tested it on yourself?

Did you try modifying the rule:
instead of "have server reply using remove(the template for message)"
try "reply using remove(the template for message)"

But most likely, in Exchange the "Disable Automatic Replies to the Internet" option in the Internet Mail Service needs to be unselected:

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, clear the check box for this default setting in Internet Mail Service on Exchange Server 5.5. Follow these steps:


On the site level, expand Configuration, and then click the Connections container.
Open the Internet Mail Service properties page, and then click the Internet Mail tab.
Click Advanced Options, and then clear the Disable Automatic Replies to the Internet check box.

ooo...Danger! Danger!  That setting to disable automatic replies from the internet is there to stop loops and floods from occurring. Before turning that off, make sure you understand what you are opening your exchange server up to.  It will most likely resolve your issue, true, but may cause more harm than good.  Just a quick caution.

mob-bom did give an excellent suggestion to try editing your rule a bit-- have you tried that?  

there are free or inexpensive download tools that can be used to manage subsriber lists, for email campaigns like you mentioned.  Using a tool like that would automate the task as you have requested, but without opening your entire email server up to a potential sunami of email.   Bronto Mail at www.bronto.com is an online resource that does it all for you. There are other options.

I didn't mean to be the bearer of bad news, and mob-bom gave you excellent instructions. I just wanted to make sure you understood the ramifications of what those instructions were asking you to do.  

Good luck, and let us know how you get on.
