Is it possible to change the behaviour of the Out Of Office feature in Exchange 2003, so that it sends the response to the senders multiple times?

I.e. If Joe (external sender) emails Fred 10 times, and Fred has an out-of-office, can we set it so that Joe gets that reply 10 times?

Thanks,

Tony

yes you can do that with Outlook. open out of office and setup the 2nd rule within out of office. then create a template reply email and it will be sent everytime an email is sent to a user. you have to allow automatic reponses in the esm. we use it and it works fine

the question should have points assigned to the person who answered the question. it is possible to have out of office answer everytime an email is sent to the user, internally and externally.

pmorton23 > that's not an out of office, that's an Inbox rule.  Which is possible to do but completely unrecommended.

You also have to have outlook open for it to reply with an email.

PMorton: while I appreciate your answer, I was looking for an Exchanged based solution, which the first person supplied.  I am sure this would work in an office for someone on vacation, this doesn't work in the situation I need it for.  There is no easy access to Outlook or a PC for this person in this case.

I just verified that outlook doesnot need to be open for the 2nd rule built into the out of office rules wizard to work. Outlook can be closed and the 2nd rule will still fire off an out of office template email.
