Out Of Office assistant not working, possibly SMTP problem? Outlook 2003/Exchange 2003

I'm trying to set up the Out of Office Assistant with a Windows XP machine w/ Outlook 2k3. We are all on a domain and using Server 2003/Exchange 2003.

Everything appears to be set up correctly, but it will only send out of office replies to people on the same domain. When I send an email from outside our office, I get no reply. The workstation is receiving those messages, so I don't think its a filter issue. The machine can send/receive mail from other domains, it just won't send the out of office message. I am leaving Outlook open and it is online. Any ideas?

This is a restriction on the Exchange server side.  Unless you have access to the server, you cannot change this.
