    Another one for you guys. Ive got a user who is using outlook 2003 on exchange 2003. She has her own mailbox set up as the primary mailbox, and has a recruitment mailbox set up as secondary. She's looking to set up a rule for the secondary mailbox so that there is an autoresponse thanking them for their application.

    If i set up a rule in the mailbox, it will only apply to her primary mailbox, and we cant switch the mailboxes around so the recruitment mailbox is primary (she still needs to be able to set out of office, etc on her own mailbox).

    The only thing i can think of is to log in under the recruitment mailbox alone, set up an out of office, and then log back in on her own profile. This should certainly send an automated reply, but the OOO autoresponses state that they are out of office emails, and we're hopefully looking for something which doesnt have that.

    any ideas?

    Thanks
    Fergal

    Fergal,

    Had this one at work........

    Go to Control Panel - Mail - Profiles........

    Add the profile & prompt the profile to be used.

    Go back into outlook under the new profile & you can set a rule for that profile......:D

    HTH

    but surely that will only work for as long as that profile is running?

    "Server-based rules and client-only rulesIf you have an e-mail account (e-mail account: The server name, user name, password, and e-mail address used by Outlook to connect to an e-mail service. You create the e-mail account in Outlook by using information provided by your administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).) on a Microsoft Exchange Server, the server can apply rules to your messages even if you don't have Outlook running. These are called server-based rules. The rules must be set to be applied to messages when you receive them in the Inbox on the server, and the rules must be able to run to completion on the server. For example, a rule can't be applied on the server if the action specifies that a message be printed. If a rule can't be applied on the server, it is applied when you start Outlook.

    A rule that can't be applied on the server has the words "client-only" added to the end of the rule's name. Client-only rules are applied after all other rules. If your list of rules contains rules that can be run on the server as well as those that can't, the server-based rules are applied first, followed by the client-only rules."
