Simple autoresponder

Is there a feature in Exch svr 2003 that allows me to create a mailbox like inforequest@domain.com that all it does is send back an autoresponder, maybe even with a different 'reply to' address?

You can do it with server side rules. The responding text has to be very simple and basic - nothing fancy.
The ability to send auto replies to the Internet is also disabled by default. You will need to enable it in ESM, Global Settings, Internet Message Formats. Click on the "Advanced" tab.

However be aware that it has its risks. It is very easy to cause email loops between you and another server. It could also be abused by someone to attack your server with multiple email messages.

It is a rule. You will need to configure Outlook with that account as the default. Once open, use the rules wizard to create the message and text.

It can indeed. It needs to be a full mailbox, with an attached user account, but it doesn't have to be used.
