The auto reply comes from the mailbox where the rule resides.

Login as the user that owns the shared mailbox mailbox and create the auto
reply rule there.   Make sure you use a profile where the Exchange mailbox
is the delivery location, so that your rule is server-side.

Subject: [exchangelist] Auto replies from Additional Mailboxes

Good morning Ladies and Gents,

Running Exchange 2000 with Client using Outlook 2000.

We have a mailbox for the HR Dept to share  (Additional mailbox within their
Exchange Profiles) and who want an Auto reply to anyone who applies to a job
posting stating they recieved the application and thanks for applying.

I've setup this one user in HR for Send On Behalf for the HR mailbox on the
Exchange server and setup a Rule in her Profile to send a Auto reply back
with specific words in the Subject and Body of the message. I've disabled
Word Spell check and created a Outlook Template which I'm using for the Auto

 I can get it to work but it's comes from her address and not the HR

What is it I'm missing here?
