Editing Auto Reply messages from public folders in Exchange/Outlook 2010

I have a mail enabled public folder that is currently configured to send automatic replys whenever an email is sent to the address configured on it.

I need to edit the message. Through the EMC I gave myself 'Owner' rights to the public folder and now I am able to right click the public folder and go to properties->General Tab->Folder Assistant->Edit Rule->Reply With (Template) and see/edit the message. However the 'From' field is populated with my email address rather than the email address of the public folder. When I try to click the 'From' button nothing happens.

How to I get this so that after I make changes to the message it comes from the desired email address?

The FROM field will not be used by the folder rule.
Make the changes and test.

If really worried, grant your acct SEND-AS rights to that folder and enter the folder name in the FROM field.
