I have an email distribution group created for firstname.lastname@example.org. There are several members of this group. I want an autoresponder created so that if anyone sends an email to the alias they get a response saying thank you for your email we will respond to you shortly.
Easy I thought! not so it would appear. I was unable to do this for a distribution group so created a mailbox instead with a forwarder to the group. I tried setting an autoreponder however they all repond saying out of office first which I don't want.
I then looked at doing this by a rule and using an email template however this only applies to the client side so as soon as outlook is closed the response stops. I am running exchange 2007. I also read articles on transport rules but most are "in theory" posts.
