Server side rule not working

I created a user in our domain with the email address of password@ourdomain.com

I then set up a server side rule in Exchange to automatically respond to all incoming email sent when someone hits a "request password" button on our web site and send them a password.

It works fine for tests coming from inside the domain, but, when I test it from outside, the email comes in but never gets responded to.

Any ideas???

You would need to allow auto-replies to the internet -> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/266166

Hopefully, you are aware of the consequences of doing this.

Are you able to post the headers of one internal request e-mail that does work and one external one that doesn't work plus the rule configuration?

The only thing I can think of is that the the message from external is not exactly the same as the internal one and therefore the rule is not picking it up.

Red Seat,
Thanks for the information and the warning that went along with it.  I have it set to reply only if that is the only address that the request is sent to and a specific phrase must be in the Subject line.

Thanks again to you and to all of Experts-exchange.  I have gotten alot of good information here.
