We have an exchange 2007 server and are migrating to Office 365 this weekend.  I plan to make the MX record change Friday evening.  As the MX record information change propagates I would like to have all incoming email messages auto responded to so that the sender can be informed that their message will not be read until the following week ( i will write up an appropriate message).  I need help with how to setup that kind of auto response for everyone.  Thanks in advance experts.

There is no real pretty way to do this in Exchange 2007 as the Transport Actions are limited from later versions of Exchange.

However what you can do is the following...
- Open the EMC
- Go to Org Config, Transport Tab
- New Transport Rule
- Give it a name (auto reply)
- Conditions, Select "Sent to user inside or outside the organization", Select Outside
- Click Next
- Under Actions Select "Send bounce message to sender with enhanced status code" (this is the not so pretty part)
- Type in a small message regarding emails will be received in a couple of days (whatever you want)
- Click Next and Finish

This will at least notify your external senders that you are doing a cutt-over and mail will still be received.

Will.

Thanks for the response... might just be the way i am reading it, but why would I select Outside for the "sent to User inside or outside" ...
would i not be concerned about emails coming from the outside to an inside user?

Thanks again
