Mail Enabled Public Folder not working for internal mail

I setup an Exchange 2003, mail enabled, public folder for auto replies sent to a distribution group and it is working great for external mail.  The mail is being delivered to the group and the auto reply is being sent to the external user. However, when an internal user sends mail the the same address the auto reply is not being sent.  The mail is delivered to the group just no reply.  Does anyone have any ideas as to what my problem may be?

Thanks,
Bob

When the message hits the PF is it the same as the Internet message? Are they both IPM.Post or is one IPM.Note?

Thanks MegaNuk3 for your response but I'm not sure what you are asking.  As I look at the public folder contents there are two different icons depicting the external mail from the internal mail.  One looks like a note with a pin and the other looks like an email.  Is this what you are talking about?

You did nothing wrong, it defaults to that. Let me see if I can find the article that tells you how to change it, then the rule should work.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/817809 just do the registry change at the bottom and then you have to restart the msexchangeis service.

NOTE: this change will affect every PF on the server that receive emails
