Outlook Express Message

Using O.E.6 for email. My nephew (thinking he was helping me) put on a message that is received by anyone who emails me. I want to delete the message. I have tried everything to delete the message with no success. I've used plain, old Outlook where I once worked and know you can delete the out-of-office assistant messages, but O.E. doesn't seem to have that feature. (I did check options.)
HELP! P.S. I am somewhat computer-challenged.

RE: Outlook Express Message

If you are refering to a "Read receipt" message, while in OE left click on Tools> Options> Receipts and select "Never send a read receipt" then left click on Apply and OK.

Out of office reply

I'm talking about a message that someone receives whenever they send me a message. It is similar to the Out-of-Office reply that you can set up in Outlook. "I am away from my computer right now. I'll respond to you when I return to my desk."
Only problem is mine is a STUPID reply like -"I will respond to you if I know who sent me the email."
What was I thinking?

start from scratch

ok- archive your emails- then go ahead and remove that account and re-add it

i use outlook 2003- so i dont know how this would worked for outlook express- but im sure its the same

Perhaps it was setup as a rule...

In OE Tools> Message Rules> Mail> Mail Rules tab> highlight the rule and click Remove. Or highlight the rule and click Modify to change.
