Outlook 2010 Auto Reply Error – Rules in Error Cannot Reply to Message

I just upgraded from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010 to hopefully finally get the auto reply working so I can put an Out of Office reply. However, there’s still a “bug” that still hasn’t been fixed. I am still getting the Rules in Error prompt with Cannot reply to message notice and then it automatically turns off the Rule I created with the specific template. Of course the official “Automatic Reply” feature is only available for those that use Microsoft Exchange email accounts. Such a basic feature that does not work on the most heavily used email client.

And their lame answer doesn’t even fix the problem even if you follow the steps exactly -
