I've created a reply.oft file and it resides locally on my machine. We've created an inbox called Escalations on the Exchange Server and need to add an auto-reply rule to it each time someone submits their Escalations to this inbox. However I've noticed on my box, when in the Escalations inbox and going into Rules Wizard to set this up it will say (Client Side Only) . I'm assuming it's only for me then at that point and that the rule will only apply to my box and not others in our Global Address book that have been added to this rule. My I.T. guy told me with the present version of Outlook Exchange that we run that it will not run hold Auto-replys templates from the Exchange Level and that older Versions of Outlook Exchange did, i.e. Outlook 98.
So my question is this, is there a way we can send our Auto-reply out to users that write to the Escalations inbox? If you could walk me through this as if I were a two year old I'd greatly appreciate it.
