We have Exchange 2007. How can I configure Exchange 2007 to create a auto replay to sender when we receive a message in one of our shared mailboxes ?

Log into that mailbox through OWA. You can set your "Auto Reply" or Out of Office assistant there.

This will not do it.
When we receive message, we would answer something like :
"Thank you for............., your request will be processed  shortly."

I know I can use the Out of  office assistant, but I don't want the replay to look Iike I  am out of office ( because I am  not ).
I have tried to create a Transport rule, but that did not do it.
Configuring server side rule in Outlook does not do it.
Is there a way to do this in EMS

Is this a mail enabled public folder?

Here is a good walkthrough. You dont have to do the distrubution group or anything, but you can. Create a mail enabled pubilc folder. Then create the Folder rule so that when someone emails the public folder, it replys with your custom reply. It can also forward the request to the appropriate person/ groups.

No, it is not a public folder.
It is a shared mailbox.

I have never done this from ESM. You can add rules in outlook though.

I enabled auto replay in exchange 2007.
Enabled the disabled user account in AD ( shared mailbox ),loged on with the user, created the server side rule with replay message in outlook.
Then i disabled the user account in AD.
The rule was working, and I got a shard mailbox with auto replay to all messages sendt to it.
