Hi,

I want to set the Out of Office agent on Outlook 2003 but due SPAM senders receiving my replies I can´t set it.

I have tried to create a rule for it but cannot make it exactly the way I need it.

I want the out of office reply to go only to the users in our Global address book. If an email comes from outside the domain I don´t want it to reply.

Thanks,

Bryan

When you add the OOO rule you should get the edit rule dialog box.
Then the from button opens the "choose sender" dialog box from where you can select everyone from the GAL.

Question for Microtech:
Will unclicking this box also disable Out of office replies to users in the GAL?

Question for meinsti:
What do you mean by OOO rule?

Ah ok, so let me see if I have this straight.

1. I disable Out of Office replies in the Global settings

Or

2. I set a rule that meets the conditions to a distribution list(s), and click the Reply with Template right?

Or both?

Method 1 will stop everyone in your organization from sending outside repies to anyone.
Method 2 will do what you ask for you only.
