Not sure where you have this information. The TM-D710 does NOT sending  
"auto reply" to bulletin group or message groups.

I can check the TM-D700 tomorrow if no one else is testing this before me.

If it's a TM-D700 then it's not possible to fix if this is a bug.

But i do suspect that it's only sending a ACK to the sender and not to  
the "group" and this is not so bad even if it should no be like that.
