I am running Outlook 2000 and MS Exchange Server 2000 on a Windows 2000
server and trying to set up a client rule to have an autoreply sent to each
email that I receive, with a few exceptions.
Here's my goal:
All emails received should receive an autoreply message and be flagged in my
Inbox. Emails that are received from co-workers, or are Read or Delivery
notifications, should be ignored.
My rule is configured as follows:
Apply this rule after the message arrives
have server reply using [my email template]
and flag for follow up in 1 day
except if the message is from [the names of my co-workers from the global
or if the subject line contains "Delivered:" or "Read:"
Here's my problem:
With the rule set up as above, the flag will be processed and a reply will
be sent SOMETIMES (I can't quite determine what the trigger is), and my
co-workers are always getting the autoreply. If I remove the flag part of
the rule and the exceptions, I get an error:
"There is not enough space on the Microsoft Exchange Server to store all of
your rules. The rules that failed to upload have been deactivated."
I have searched the MS Knowledgebase for this error and came up with article
Q241325 which suggests creating a Distribution List and keeping the name and
number of recipients small. I need to be able to have an autoreply sent to
each person who sends me an email. I have also tried setting the rule to
reply only to messages in which my email address is in the To or CC box in
an effort to "limit" the number of recipients, as suggested in the MS
article, but have not had a difference in the results.
Any information for resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.
