    Default Auto-reply for distribution list

    One of our offices has a 'jobs@example.com' distribution list, and they would like to send an acknowledgement in reply to every mail that arrives at the address. Is there something like an away message for distribution lists, or is there another way to accomplish this in Zimbra?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    I currently do this with Mailman+Zimbra because I need control over posting, but you should be able to accomplish this by creating a regular user setting an away message, and them forwarding the mail to another user or distribution list.

    Hello,
    but you should be able to accomplish this by creating a regular user setting an away message, and them forwarding the mail to another user or distribution list.
    I created a distro.list.away@mydomain.com account, added it to the distribution list distro.list@mydomain.com, configured a one day email life time and enabled
    the away message.
    When I send a mail to distro.list.away@mydomain.com, I receive the away message but if sending a mail to distro.list@mydomain.com, I don't receive it ...
    Is this normal ?

    OK I found a working solution :

    One account distro@domain.com with away message and one day email life time, forwarding to a distribution list distro.list@domain.fr including regular member accounts.

    It works but it is not easily enabled ?
    And why, when sending a mail to a distro list, account's away message doesn't reply ?
    Will this features be implemented in next realease ?

    Many thanks in advance for your reply (I'm planning to put a zimbra production server next week)

    Just wanted to ask if anything has changed in Zimbra 5...

    We need to have auto-reply for distribution-lists. Is there any way to do it (including manual editing of config-files)?
