Auto-Response on Distribution list

We need to setup a custom auto-response on one of our emails that is only a distribution list email.  I only see the option to set it up for "send out-of-office messages to originator".    Is it possible to put a custom message somehow?

Thanks.

I haven't tried this, but...

I add my account to a Distribution List. I then open my Outlook and create a new rule. I choose "Start from a Blank Rule." I choose "Check Messages When They Arrive." I then go down the list of options and check "sent to people or Distribution List". I choose my Distribution List from the GAL. At the next screen in the Rules Wizard, I choose "Have Server Reply Using a Speciific Message". When the template pops-up, type your message in the body of the email and save it.

Again, I haven't tried this...but I think it might work for you.

Hi,
What version of Exchange are you talking about here. In Exchange 2007 you can use Transport Rules to achieve the same.
