I am using Office 365 Exchange online and Outlook.
I am trying to auto reply to anyone who send a message to my mailbox, when I setup Outlook rule with "have server reply using a specific message", it only reply to internal users, but failed to reply to external recipients.

just thinking it's not an Outlook issue...

was wondering  if those emails are still in outbox and could not be sent out to external recipients?
