Exchange 2003 auto response to external contacts.


I just want to know if there is a way to create an auto response email.
the auto response email will be sent to external ( non-AD users) contacts when they send email to a specific mail group.

If the idea is not clear, I want implement an email solution as same as answer machine.  to tell the external senders a specific massage.

thanks in advance.

The Exchange 2010 tag is not applicable since only a solution for an exchange 2003 server is offered.
