I would say using the server side option could well be the best as they work even when Outlook isn't running which I would guess you'd want.

Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

Whether a rule runs on the client or server is not an explicit setting. It
depends totally on the conditions and actions you choose for the rule. Some
of the conditions that will force a rule to execute only on the client are
listed at http://www.slipstick.com/rules/serverbased.htm. You'll want to
avoid those.

Once you set your conditions appropriately, on the actions list you should
see "have server reply using a specific message." Select that action, then
click the underlined text to create the message you want to appear in the

Ive set up the rule in outlook.

Just done a test and not getting a automated email back to my yahoo account

Any advice
There is an exchange global setting to allow auto replies externally that has to be enabled before this will work.
One other thing to be weary of is that this opens you up to mail loop issues.  If the mailbox you auto respond to also has an auto response set to reply, it can cause huge issues.
