Server Side Rules are not routing email to domain name

I have a situation where the rules in outlook are not routing emails externally.  I can manually send email to this specific external address by creating a new email and adressing to the recipient.  However when I set a rule to do exactly the same thing, the email never gets there and the rule completes without error.  It doesn't matter what the external domain is either.  It works manually, but will not work automatically with a rule.  Has anyone seen this before?  Is it a limitation to the rules feature set in Outlook?  I cannot find anything whatsoever on this issue.

Thanks in advance,
Todd

Which version of Exchange?
In the later versions the auto reply facility is disabled - and for good reason. An auto reply message can quickly bring a server down. It just takes two badly configured auto reply messages and an email loop will occur. Doesn't take long for a loop to fill a mailbox store.

As you haven't said which version of Exchange it is, I cannot tell you where to look - unless you know you have enabled the auto reply feature.
