I have Exchange 5.5 Sp4.  I set up a internal mailbox that I don't want mail to go in called ProductHelp.  I turned on the Alternate Recpient function through Exchange Admin and pointed it to another internal mailbox called HelpDesk.  When I send an e-mail to the ProductHelp mailbox, it does not get re-routed to the HelpDesk mailbox.  It just goes to the ProductHelp mailbox.  Any reasons why?

There is no clear reason why this would happen other than Exchange is not seeing that setting.  The first thing I would do is remove the alternate recipient and re-add.  You may also want to try a different alternate recipient and maybe check delivery restrictions on the original alternate recipient.  It also sounds like you want to check the box that prevents a copy from going into "ProductHelp".

Try all that and let us know what happens.
