Have asked a similar question to this recently but this is one is subtly different. I would like to have a fully fledged auto reply mechanism within Exchange and Outlook. We have investigated enabling the standard Exchange "Allow Automatic Replies" and "Allow Automatic Forward" options but we don't want to allow all mailboxes the feature so that we can retain company data and can't take the risk of mail loops so wont be enabling it in exchange unless we can control more fully who can create auto reply rules in Outlook.
SO my question is .. can anyone recommend any alternatives to Exchange "Allow Auto Replies" to give us similar functionality but with more security and controllability? This may be a 2rd Party add on or similar or external service that provides the same functionality.
