Is it possible to set up an auto-reply message for Exchange DLs?

I've created several distribution lists (DLs) or groups linked to email addresses on my Exchange server. How can I set up an auto-reply message for these distribution groups at the server level?

Exchange Server does not provide an auto-responder feature out-of-the-box. However, Exchange public folders can be set up to send auto-responses. Alternatively, you can look at third-party utilities like GFI Mail Essentials.
