Auto-Reply With Attachment?

On a client mailbox using office 2000 and connecting to an exchange 2003 server, is there a way to set up an auto-reply that will also attach a document to the auto-reply message?

You should be able to use the auto reply with template option in the server side rules for Outlook. The basic steps are to create a template with the attachment you need to send and then create a rule that checks messages when they arrive and reply with the template.

You need to make sure that auto replies to the Internet is enabled on your Exchange organisation using ESM > Global Settings > Internet Message Formats > Right click the domain name i.e. * > Properties > Advanced

This refers to IMO config but the steps should work the same -
