Auto Reply with Attatchment in Exchange 2007

Hi there

I am running Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003 Server. I have been asked to configure an automatic reply with an attachment when an e-mail is sent to a specific e-mail address.
I think that it can be created by creating an Outlook rule as a client-side rule but that would not actually suit what we need.
Is it possible to do by using Exchange Management Console? And if yes how can I do it
I would really appreciate it if some could guide me clearly as I am new to Exchange 2007
Thanks

Hi,
It can be achieved using the Transport Rules feature in Exchange 2007 (just verify the Att part, not in front of my server so can't comment 100%)
Here are couple of links to guide you:
Hope this helps
Thanks

Well, Thanks for your comments they are helpful but none of them explained how to attach a document to the bounced back e-mail.

Creating an Outlook Rule won't help as Outlook won't be open.

Help please

Like, I said, you will have to explore the Trasnport Rule, yes you can do with that. I do not have access to a Exchange Server 2007 for next 1 day, so if you can wait I can give u exact steps, else, explore (i am sure I did this earlier via transport rules)
Thanks

Hi,
Apologies for the delay in response, I actually missed the thread until when I saw your message.
I must agree that using Transport Rule, it is not possible to do an autoreply using attachments. The solution would be to use Outlook Rules or any other Exchange Code to achieve the same.
Thanks

Hi,
By the way, you say you have got the solution, can you share.
See, we all are volunteers here and try to help you to the best of our knowledge. At times we get busy in our offices/homes etc and we have famillies too. We are here to share knowledge. Then there are cases where we are stumped at times too like this one and I must accept the same.
Thanks

My solution

. I have worked out myself but through Outlook not through ESM. First you configure Outlook profile for the user you want auto reply from then you go to Tools and  choose Out of Office Assistant and then click on Add Rule an new blank e-mail message will apear type what you like in it attach a file, save it and close it. That is it
