-------------------------------------------------------I've been googling but 
so far havent come with any thing other than 3rd party 
tools that seem to do a lot more than I need.

Have an Exchange 2003 server with, client machines running a mix of Outlook 
2000 and 2003 (in the process of migrating all the machines).

Company has a mailbox jobs@xxxxxxxxxxx for all employment enquiries, resumes 
etc.  This mailbox is only accessed via OWA since multiple people need to 
acces it/monitor it regularly.  The onsite admin used the OOF assistance to 
reply to incoming message, however HR doesn't want the OOF message to go out, 
they want something along the lines of 

    Subject: AUTORESPONDER: Thanks for you employment enquiry
    Body: Thank you for contacting us regarding employment, this is an 
    response to let you know we've received your information and we'll be 
    contacting you shortly.

I used Outlook 2000 and logged in over the VPN, tried to use the rules wizard 
and when I click finish it says:

    There is not enough space on the Microsoft Exchange Server to store all 
    rules.  The rules that failed to upload have been deactivated

I had a read through the various KB on this error articles and realize that 
using the rules wizard is likely a waste of time since there doesn't seem to 
be a way adjust the rules via OWA and trying to fix the the number of rules 
that are already over the 32k limit is too complicated.

So, what do folks recommend I do to accomplish the autoresponser
