Exchange 2010 / Automatic Replies (Out of Office) on Client
Posted on 2014-09-16
End users can easily set their automatic replies via OWA for both internal and/or external senders i.e., vacation, out of office, etc.
I have two generic departmental accounts for one of my customers (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) set up that are forwarded to a user that is responsible for the particular department.
This all works fine ONCE for each unique sender but will not send out the automatic reply the second time a sender shoots out an email to "repairs" or "chemicals".
My client wants this auto reply to be sent out every time an internal or external sender shoots an email to either one of those addresses.
One of my IT colleagues suggested setting up a transport rule but I really want my clients to be able to take care of the auto replies themselves. They change it all the time.
In the OWA client interface just above the body of the reply, it states "Send a reply once to each sender inside/outside my organization with the following message:
The key word is ONCE.
How do I change that so it replies every time? Registry tweak? Exchange Shell command?
Also, this Exchange Server is running on SBS 2011, virtualized on 2008R2 Hyper-V core Enterprise ...
