Really? How do I set up an exception rule in OOA to ignore certain messages?

I'm using OOA in Outlook 2007 to auto-reply, but want to exclude some

inbound messages from getting my reply. Specifically, I want to exclude

messages that I receive from a mailing list that my company uses.

I know (basically) how to set up rules in OOA, and see the following options:

Alert with, Delete, Move to, Copy to, Forward, Reply with, and Custom. No

Ignore, though. Can I use "Custom" to perform an Ignore?

No, that is not possible and I think you got confused by the mixed up

conversation.

If you want to have a selective OOF, then you'll have to emulate the OOF by

creating a rule of your own which replies with a template to certain

addresses or all and excludes other.

For an example see;

Custom allows you to use custom actions. You'll set exceptions from the Advanced dialog (click the Advanced button.)

What version of Exchange?

You can set up multiple rules and used the Advanced button to create

exceptions. Don't enter a generic autoreply on the first screen. Click

Rules, Add... Enter the list address (to or from, depending on how the list

is configured). In Perform these actions, select Reply with a template. Put

your oof message there. Click Advanced and select the option for all except

these conditions...

FWIW, properly designed and configured mailing list software will dump the

OOF (and other) automated replies.

Open the Assistant. Click Add Rule. Put the addresses you don't want

receiving the OOA reply in the From feld. Check "Do not process subsequent

rules". Clck Advanced. Check "Only items that do not match these

conditions". Click OK. Specify whatever action you want. I usually choose

"Alert with", click Action, uncheck "Notify with the text", check Play, and

choose some sound, then click OK. Since the rule will fire when I'm not there

and while Outlook is closed, the action will do nothing. Click OK two more

times to finalize all the dialogue boxes.
