Can I set up a generic auto-reply message in Exchange 2003?

We are using Exchange Server 2003. Our office just relocated to another state and we had 30 employees that decided not to relocate. Their user accounts have been disabled, but email is still in their mailboxes. What is the best way to forward email from a former employee’s mailbox into a current employee’s mailbox? Also, can I set up a generic auto-rely message for an entire group so that when an email is sent to any of the former employees' mailboxes, an auto-reply message will be generated. I'd prefer not to have to set up 30 individual auto-reply messages.

Configure the mail delivery options for each user to forward a copy of all messages to a designated user. You can choose to also keep a copy of the message in the mailbox. Unfortunately, I do not know of a way to configure a generic auto-reply for a group of users. My thoughts on this are you would have to use some form of e-mail screening/filtering device to accomplish something of this nature.
