I have a user who is no longer with the company. I am trying to set up an automated response to external emails informing them of that, and who to direct their emails to going foward. I tried following some google suggestions but I do not see the same screenshots they show in the procedure. I was hoping to find something here.

is that user mailbox still alive? if so just configure that account by giving you the full mailbox permission and set out of office.

It's alive for now, but I would like to just sent notices to external emailers.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

By default the automatic forwarding and responses to an external address is disabled in exchange

The exchange server needs to be configured to allow this to happen

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/266166

If you do not have admin access to the exchange server, you will need to contact your exchange admin to help implement the changes

However, be warned that this is disabled for a reason...
By enabling it, should a user get spammed and an automatic reply is sent

The auto reply will essentially be confirming an valid email address

Also on accounts that have a auto reply setup for incomming mail
Should you get and email from an address with similar setup
You could create a Loop of auto replies between the two addresses
Resulting in a massive mailbox and or your account/domain being blacklisted as a spammer
