did I imagine it or is there now a way to set a Zimbra auto-reply through Outlook with the connector installed?
I'm sure I spotted it when testing 5 before but can't find it now!
This is in Zimbra 5.0.9 on CentOS 5.1 in either Outlook 2003 or 2007.
I'm not sure we've provided a method to do that yet: Bug 6112 - outlook does not show the out of office assistant
(For now you have to sign-on to the web-client.)
If you were gonna leave outlook running the entire time I suppose you could create a template message > rules & alerts > check messages when they arrive > select a condition > reply using template.
Might vote for this RFE as well, as filter rules can be set in ZCO at this time but it's lacking: Bug 18288 - Enable a "reply with text" (or auto-reply) option for Mail Filters
