    I used the following MS Knowledge Base article to create an autoreply message (since we don't use MS Exchange Server in our office I don't have the Out of Office Assistant):

    support.microsoft.com/?kbid=248830

    (hhmm... seems I'm not allowed to post active urls since I am new here, the non-active link above works if you cut and paste it to your browser.)
    I've never created an autoreply message before but I was pretty sure there was some way to do it so I tracked that down.
    The only problem is that I only want to create this autoreply for a email account. which is not the default email account. In the template file I even specified to send the message using the account the email comes in on, but it replies using the default mail account rather than the one I want it to.

    My Rule for this is:

    1. Check mail on arrival from this altername account
    2. Reply using template C:\Documents and Settings\user\Applications\Templates\OutOfOffice.oft
    3. stop rule processing

    In reality part 2 of this rule should be:
    Reply using template C:\Documents and Settings\user\Applications\Templates\OutOfOffice.oft and send via altername account

    Is there any way to set the reply to use the non-default account rather than the default one?

    If not, can anyone suggest an application which will do this?
