OK - Is it possible to set up an Exchange "Echo" account in Exchange? So that if myself or my fellow engineers are out and about and need to test outbound and inbound mail we can just send an email to echo@mydomainname.co.uk and it will reply

YES I can create an account and put out of office on it but thats not as elegant (is this the only way it can be done) ?
