When an external email comes in to our Exchange 2010 server and is destined for which is an email attached to a distribution group how can I send an automatic reply saying "Thank you for your interest..."? I can't see an obvious way to do this.

This is very simply done in Outlook Rules. Set the Outlook Rule to

  • "Where my name is in the To: or CC: box"
  • "have the server reply with a specific message"
  • Enter the message, as 'specific message' is hyper linked'
  • Do not run if the body contains some key phrase in the body of the auto-reply. This prevents mail-loops.
