Sending an automatic email reply using the Rules Wizard

Hi,

I receive about a dozen email leads per day from a 
directory. I want to reply to each email with a template 
message as soon as the email arrives in my Inbox. 

I have setup the Rules Wizard to accomplish this, and it 
works great except it sends the email reply to the 
Sender's email address, not the Reply-To email address.  
The emails that I receive are all sent from the same 
address:  admin@thisdirectory.com.  

So, if I use the Rules Wizard, Outlook inserts 
admin@thisdirectory.com in the To: field for each 
message.  This is the problem.  But, if I manually reply 
to each email, Outlook will insert the proper email 
address in the To: field for each message.  
 
How can I get this to work so the Reply Template will 
send my replies to the Reply-To address and not to the 
Sender's address?

Thanks a lot,
Matt

Sorry - I don't have a fix, but I am seeing the same 
behavior and also need it corrected - somehow ...  I hope 
someone here can help.

No message in outbox
I tried to send a message with 1Mb attachment to 40 recipients in the bcc field. It gave me an error message from the isp's server, the message was NOT sent (I've checked), it did NOT arrive in Sent Items, but neither is it in the Outbox any more. I can send and receive email successfully. Problem is, every few minutes Outlook tells me it's sending message 1 of 1, it fails and gives me the same error message. Yet there is no message in the Outbox. But what happened to the original message when it first failed to send? I guess it's 'stuck' somewhere but I can...

Send and Recieve Fix
For a long time I had a problem with my Send/Recieve function in Outlook. This happended in both Outlook 2000 and my current version - 2007.
