I am trying to setting up an auto reply rule for a mailbox that is monitored periodically.  I need the rule to send messages externally.  Basically for example you email me a resume and my email account automatically says thank you we will contact you.....

When I setup the rule in outlook to take all email address To me directly and have the server reply a message...
The rule does not work.  Is there something in Exchange that needs to be configured to send externally?

I Have tried the above article but I receive a message can not reply to message.  I can of course manually reply to the message.  I am thinking it is something with Exchange 2007.

Something similar as the email address manager are the event sinks and to accomplish this you would need to create an exchange sink to do this at the server level. Use a Application called exclaimer. It utilizes 6 generic exchange event sinks to accomplish a number of objectives.

is auto reply enabled on the server
you can check that by going into organization configuration and then the hub transport rule
after that check the properties of "default" under remote domains and click on the message formats tab.
