How do you configure and auto reply message from the client side (Outlook 2007) without using Out of Office?

Our Sales Department head has requested that we make this configuration for his e-mail and he does not want the sender of the e-mail to see any content referring to Out of Office in the auto repky message.

Thank you

5. Under What do you want to do with the message, click to select the have server reply using a specific message check box.
6. Under Rule Description, click the underlined phrase a specific message. If this is the first time that you have created a server-side rule, click Yes when you receive the following prompt:
You are creating a rule that will be incompatible with versions of Outlook earlier than Outlook 2000. If you create this rule, you cannot use your rules with Outlook 98 and earlier versions. For more information, search for help on "Upgrading Rules." Are you sure you want to create this rule
NOTE: This prompt only occurs once. If you use these steps again, you will not receive this prompt.
7. In the Rule Description, click a specific message.

9. Complete the Rule Wizard instructions, click Finish and then click OK.
