Set auto reply to all incoming messages for particular mailbox Exchange 2010

ShareVistaTechs used Ask the Experts™
I am looking for a way to set an automated response on a mailbox in Exchange 2010 that will respond to every email sent to the particular mailbox. Automatic Replies/Out of Office will only respond to the sender once. I have also attempted using a Hub transport rule, but the only automated response available is a rejection NDR. With this the response email looks like a rejection and the original message does not make it to the recipients inbox inside of my organization. I've also attempted setting up a rule that responds with an Outlook template, but this does not seem to be working either.

Does anyone know of a 3rd party app that can achieve this for me, or something integrated into Exchange 2010?

This does provide an auto reply, however it will only send it once for each sender. I need the ability to send an auto response every time an email is sent to a particular mailbox, regardless of whether the sender has sent multiple messages to the recipient with the auto reply enabled.
