Microsoft Exchange Rules
When Exchange 2003 is set to NOT allow email to be sent to an external email account, you can get around this by creating a personal distribution group and "manually" forward an email to the external email address. However, so far I'm unable to via a "rule" automatically forward an email to the personal distribution group. The rule sees the distribution group contains an external email address and so does not work. Is there any way to create a "rule" to automatically forward an email based on incoming address and subject to an external email address? Thanks.

I don’t believe so. One of the reasons corporations turn off all external email forwarding is because, unlike the out of office which sends a response once, automatic forwarding rules will keep forwarding repeatedly causing endless email loops. We had a few of those occur recently and had to turn of all external forwarding for this very reason. One user had thousands of emails in one day due to his auto forward rule.
