Disable Forwarding But Still Allow Out Of Office Replies?

We are currently running groupwise 6.5 and our new CIO is contemplating converting to exchange for our email system.  In exchange, is it possible to disable all mail forwarding but yet still allow out of office replies?  If so what versions and how?  I need a step by step explanation.

Thanks In Advance

Hi melod,
 Open Exchange System Manager
- Cascade the items for Global Settings
- Click on Internet Message Formats
- In the right-hand pane, double-click on 'Default'
- Select the 'Advanced' tab
- Make the box for 'Allow out of office responses' is checked
- Untick the box allow auto replies.

Hope This helps

you must stop the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) and Microsoft Exchange Routing Engine services, and then restart them.

I believe so... There are definitely to tick boxes that distinguish between automatic forwards, automatic replies and out of office replies.
