or

delete the group, then create an user, then have all emails from that user forwarded to the group. Then you can login under that user, and setup an autoreply.

Don't know if this can be done within Exchange 2007 only but if you're using Outlook you can configure a rule so that the server sends a automatic reply when the account receives a message.

Menu Tools
-> Rules and Alerts
-> New Rule
-> Select "check messages when they arrive" and click "Next"
-> do not select anything in the next window and confirm the warning message that this rule will be applied to every message you receive
-> select "Have server reply using a specific message"
-> Click on "a specific message" to edit the message.

If you want you can add additional recipients to the CC or BCC field.

This can be done on 1 outlook client for a distribution group that receives the email.

I would be more inclined to change your approach slightly.

Create a public folder, give that the email address of the group, configure an auto-reply on the PF, and redirect it to your distribution group.

It removes the reliance on users, who, quite frankly, break everything, and only exposes you to the normal auto-reply terrors.
