new transport rule

casscar used Ask the Experts™
Dear all,

We have our exchange servers 2010 and we would like to create a new transport rule that states that as soon as an email is sent to a particular distribution email group or individual an automatic email reply is sent to the sender. (Like an out of office reply).

Can you please guide how this can be done?
