Automatic reply to emails containing keywords


We are receiving many unsolicited job applications, and would like to set an automatic answer to emails containing keywords such as “job application”.
I have seen rules, and automatic replies for leave, but I’m missing a way to set a rule to auto-send a reply to an email with defined keywords.

Is there a way to do that ?

thank you

Hi @ormidablearchi

Not as far as I am aware at this as Auto-respond is a Server function.
You say ‘many’ and if this is really excessive, why not create a rule to move these emails to a folder, then once a day or week create a Distribution List from the sender emails and use the list to send a single reply to all.

Hi Skybat

I don’t think this was a reply to me.

Hi @alanwood

Sorry about that - clearly advancing age is not your exclusive!
