My plan is to add a automatic reply to all incoming emails for a exchange mailbox. I created a rule that would check all incoming and created the template reply. Created it so it would match a server rule so outlook would not have to be open.

If I send an email from my work account on the same exchange server, it works and sends the reply I created. With outlook open or closed.

However, when I send email from outside the company, (my personal email), it does not get a reply. What the heck is going on there?

I think the issue is within the selection of who the email is too. I have tried "only to me" "where my name is in TO or CC" as well as "sent to people or distribution list".

So any ideas of why this isn't working. I thought this question was a super user question as appose to server fault.

Thank you,

Possible that the server is configured not to send replies outside the company? OK to your company mail but not non-company account?
