I just set up Exchange 2003 in a Windows 2000 domain. All the recipients have a smtp address of "" in Active Directory. "" is a not a publicly registered domain name and it is only used internally. Most Exchange recipients also have POP3 accounts from a internet email host provider. In the Outlook clients I have added both an Exchange account and a POP3 account. It works fine as far as sending emails is concerned, Outlook knows when to use the appropriate account/service depending on whether the email is for an exchange  recipient in the global list or to an internet email address. However when I try to forward email that was received from a POP 3 account to an Exchange recipient in the global list Outlook uses the POP3  smtp host address to send it out on the internet and of course it comes back undeliverable. How can I correct this problem. Thanks
