Exchange Email Software

One of our departments has a need for software that will send a notification if an email that was sent to them is not replied back to within a certain time period.  We are running Exchange 2003.

I have not been able to find software that will do this. Does anyone know of such software?

That functionality is definitely not included as standard in Exchange 2003. You would need some advanced VBS scripting or a third-party application to accomplish this, although I've never heard of anything like it out there. Might be worth posting a question over in the VBS Scripting zone and see what the experts over there can come up with.

Alternatively (and I know it's not using Exchange), I would probably end up getting some sort of web contact form running instead (with a backend database) which would be used for contact to the department. All messages would be stored in the database (perhaps a simple notification email sent to the department's Exchange account to alert them to the new message) and a scheduled task could run through the database every hour or so and send an email should there be a message which it flags up as not receiving a reply. You'd need to get a web developer to do that for you, unless you can do web development in some back-end scripting language...
