How would one  setup an auto-reply for a mailbox in Exchange 2010 so when someone emails an particular address they get an auto reply. I know this can be done in outlook quite easily but how would go about doing via exchange.

Thank you.

Hi Santoshmotwani,

I am applying these command in powershell and they aren't working.

Error received is Get-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration isn't recognized as a cmdlet.

What I am doing wrong?

Thank you.

Hope this is what you did right?

Get-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration "Username"

It could be you dont have rights to run this command ? Can you please paste output for following :

Get-ManagementRoleAssignment is giving the same thing "isn't recognized as a cmdlet" I am running Windows Server 2008 R2 with Exchange 2010 installed if that helps.

Thank you.
