Exchange 2013 Server Side Auto Response setup with Outlook 2013 doesn't work

We have a Exchange 2013 server when I want to configure a server side auto-reply to respond to all emails received with an acknowledgement email.  I have configured this using the Outlook 2013
Apply rule to on messages I receive > Where my name is in the To or CC Box > Have server reply using a specific message
No exceptions.

We are unable to get the auto reply to sent out.

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.

are you seeing any error while doing this?

Unable to find any errors. Out of office is working. But that doesn't serve our purpose of sending a response to every email.

Issue resolved :

For External recipients – Remote Domains:-


We need to enable the below parameters for the remote domain ‘*’

AutoReplyEnabled : True

AutoForwardEnabled : True

This parameter allows users to send automatic replies to the external clients.

Use the below command to set the value to True:

Set-RemoteDomain -Identity Default – AutoReplyEnabled $true – AutoForwardEnabled $true

Note: We have to wait for the AD replication to complete before the changes takes effect.
