Hey Jorge,

Unfortunately it is not possible with New-InboxRule or Set-InboxRule

What you can do is give yourself Full Access to everyones mailbox and use OWA to login to their Outlook and setup rules.

I'm sorry, I did not know that. I don't think there are any other options. Sending an auto-reply to every email is essentially a  bad practice. That may be why they do not allow it at a server level. If it were to reply to every email, it will reply to spam and that is not good. It could increase the amount of mail traffic and inevitably get your mail server blacklisted.

I would just forward the email to the new recipient and let them respond to people that should get the new email address. You definitely do not want to give every new email address in your organization to a spammer.
