Hi list, I have been asked by our upper management to see if we can
enable a global auto reply email message to all emails received while
our organization shuts down over a week long furlough in July.


We are running Exchange 2003 in a single server environment with Win
2003 AD, fully patched as of early June 09. We use Postini's service for
external spam filtering and they have already said they do not have the
ability to send a reply to all emails, unless we are bouncing messages
back and not having them delivered to the recipients, which we do not
want to do. Basically we want to receive them all but just have an auto
reply to the effect of "Our offices will be closed from July 3 through
July 12..." Management does not want to rely on individuals setting this
up on their own since many people may not or the message may be


Is there anything within Exchange 2003 that can do this?


Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
