i'm running Outlook 2007 as a stand-alone client. am trying to set up a rule to send an auto-reply to all emails stating i am out of the office. i've done this before on Outlook 2003 with no problems. The rule is set, and i get an error message each time an email arrives - error box says 'rule in error' and 'cannot reply to this message'. i cannot find any help section that addresses this issue. help please!
