Exchange auto-reply to messages

We have Exchange Server 2007 and Outlook 2007 on client machines, on a domain.  I set up an email address that, when mailed to, we want it to send out an auto reply.  I don't want it to be Out of Office because I want the subject line to not have that in there.

I'm able to set it up like this by making a Rule, but the problem is that you have to have the Outlook client up and running at all times for it to work, which is a problem.  How can I send out an auto-reply and not have to keep the client running?  What is the best option?

You don't need to have Outlook running to have the rule fire. When you create the rule, select "have server reply using a specific message".
