Here's my scenario, made generic, of course. What's wrong?
I am connected at work to a Microsoft Exchange Backoffice Server. I use
Exchange exclusively for my e-mail.
My internal User Name is "jzb29." This is used for internal mail. I can
also be reached internally as "jbryant." Through the Internet, people
I set up an Inbox Assistant rule, using the "Reply with" template. It is
to send an automatic reply when it receives a message with "cookies" in
the subject field. I created the template, and put "cookies" in the
subject field in the rule.
Here's what happens:
I send myself a messages with "cookies" as the subject.
request), but I get no autoreply.
* The same thing happens if I send it to "jbryant."
* HOWEVER, if I send it to "jzb29," it sends me the autoreply also!
* Furthermore, if I pull up my despised-but-sometimes useful UNIIX
box and send a command-line message from there to ANY of the
above for possibilities, I again get not autoreply.
Moreover, if ANYONE sends me a message, using ANY of the possible
addresses and from ANY type of mail program, they will NEVER get an
autoreply. SUMMARY: The only way I can get an autoreply is to send
myself a message using the SMTP address "JZB29."
Any idea why this would be? Actually, it is much more important than
"cookies." I am trying to complete a project for my company that
requires this. Please help.
And PLEASE, copy me personally on your reply because I don't get much
chance anymore to follow the newsgroups.
