Hi,

I am curious to how or if we can set up an Automatic Replies on a Mailbox that has already been disabled?  To just say if you have reached this email and are looking for an attorney, please email &*^%@lawyer.com?

I am thinking that once the mailbox is disabled it is done.

the email needs to be active on exchange an option is to have one mailbox with all the emails you want to disable as aliases and then set a transport rule to automatically reply to whoever sends that to that user to reply with a specific message

Thanks,

I am the lone IT Manager here and I know you used to be able to log in to the Exchange console as all users so you can configure their mailboxes?   We don't even have that ability, and I am thinking that the console was never used here.  I think if I had the console open....I could set this up ?

or you can create a transport rule with

 "Apply rules to messages when a recipient's address contains 'oldemployer@lawyer.com' send 'This E-mail address is no longer in use. Please contact &*^%@lawyer.com for any help." to sender with '5.7.1'.

if you are talking about autoreply you can use Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration

Sorry but where do you create the transport rule under a generic mailbox ?

Then just add all the disabled mailboxes that you want the message to display ?
