Setup auto responder Exchange 2007 server side

Hi,

using Server 2003 R2, Exchange 2007 SP3.

How can I setup a auto responder on a mailbox so that the user cannot remove/edit it.?

Is that possible?
Thanks

You can use hub transport rules to setup auto responders

And users cant remove / edit it.

How would I add a full message, with almost 50 words. in the responder?

you dont need to add a full message.
You just need to add the to / from / subject etc and configure the transport rules.

Where do I put the text of the auto responder?

I am getting something like this:
Apply rule to messages
sent to Mailbox1
send Delivery not authorized, message refused to sender with 5.7.1

I can change the message but what about 5.7.1?

Is that the right option?

my apologies. Transport rule wont help you create an auto-responder in this case.
I was trying to test it earlier today and it didnt work.

You need an exchange event sink / script to do this.
Please see an example here

This was way too complicated. But a possible solution for sure.

I am going to use a rule for now.
