How do I AutoReply and Forward simultaneously in Exchange 365?

I have set up Auto Reply and Forwarded to our new email address after adding the address as a Contact. When I test it, the forwarding works but the Auto Reply is not generating. I was told that you can not do this in 365 but does anyone have a work around without using Outlook?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You should be able to use the Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration.
Example below...
Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration -Identity User1 -AutoReplyState Enabled -InternalMessage "Away from desk" -ExternalMessage "Away from desk" -ExternalAudience All

You cannot have both OOO and forward on the same mailbox. As a workaround, you can create an Inbox rule.
