As the best guess would be that you are using Oracle's server and and 
also that that uses XMPP, this reply to another question, on the mailing 
list, is probably relevant:

Hi Cassandra. Pidgin only sends auto replies on IM protocols that have
historically featured auto replies (and the "auto-reply" preference
only pertains to those IM protocols). Specifically, only AIM and
Zephyr. This is because there's no way to indicate that a message is
an auto-reply on other IM protocols, and they tend to confuse people.

I think the purple plugin pack might include a plugin that adds auto
reply functionality for other protocols. More info at
