I'm pretty sure your idea is on the money. One way to test this would be to send a test email just as you had thought, with reply-to set to your personal email. Once it is sent and recieved, try replying to it and see if it works!
Yep any email address in the reply-to will get auto replies. I get all of our webinar ones, lucky me :)
Thanks Josh and Kim! Josh, I will test it out based on your instructions!
It is important to keep in mind not all email systems implement auto responders.
To be more specific, that is a feature still in draft mode, governed by two Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards:
RFC-3834 Recommendations for Automatic Responses to Electronic Mail
RFC-5230 Sieve Email Filtering: Vacation Extension
That may not be enabled or configured on systems implementing auto responders.
It is up to each email server administrator.
In general most systems will send the auto reply to the intended "reply to" address.
Some will send to "from" regardless what is set on "reply to".
