  2. Go to File > Save As and choose Template.
  3. Save the template name as Auto-Reply.
  4. Close the template, not go to Tools > Message Filters. Click New and change the name to Auto-Reply.
  5. Select Match all of the following, and under the For Apply Filter When change the Subject to To and insert your email address you want to activate the auto-reply for.
  6. Click the Plus button at the end of TO and change the TO to Status. Leave the middle menu at is, then select New.
  7. Click the Plus button again and change TO to Status and middle one to isn't, then the last field to Replied.
  8. Click Plus button one more time and change TO to Status then middle one to isn't and the latest one to Forwarded.
  9. Under Perform These Actions, select Move Message to and use Reply With Template from the drop down menu, then select Auto-Reply template.
