What do you mean by "affecting the primary account"?

Not exactly sure what you are looking to do, but maybe you can setup an Out Of Office message for the 2nd account?  Maybe you can setup an Inbox rule for it?

Try both!!!   If you use an "Out of Office message or place a rule" on the secondary account below the primary, the message or rule will affect the 1st account...

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

When you login to the second account and run Outlook, you have the option in the Rules Wizard to "Have the Server send a reply" when any message is sent to the account. You can then customise the message which is sent back to incoming mail.

The other option is an Out-of-office message.

If you use the rule approach, you need to be careful that you do not end up in an email loop, which could cause serious problems.

Just saw your second post. I assume this second account is a completely separate Active Directory User with a mailbox, not just an email address on your main Active Directory user account? If it is a separate account, you need to login to the network as THAT account and open Outlook in order to configure the rule.

Exactly, but the secondary account is just that, " an Email account" not another account with an email address attached... Just an email account ...

In Exchange 2003, you need an AD account tied to the mailbox.  Can you explain your configuration of this 2nd account a little better so we can understand your setup and guide you?

I would first like to thank everyone for this great experience... this was the first time I have ever spoke with or provide a problem on this site and I really enjoy all the extremely fast solutions to the problem...  This is how I solved the problem...
1.  I went thru. Start, Control Panel, mail
2.  Show Profiles, Add, and put-in the Second account... With this you have an option of selecting one or the other - Primary or Secondary account... Than you have the option of using the Out-of-Office or a Rule...  And again, I would like to thank everyone and look forward to talking later...

Glad you solved it. Just so you know, your approach was virtually the same as mine, except you used the Outlook Profiles system rather than logging in as the appropriate user mailbox.
