I have an Exchange 5.5 server and am trying to forward incoming mail to an external address.  I have set up two recipients.  One recipient uses an SMTP address of the local domain (xxxx@mydomain.com).  I have turned on mail forwarding for this recipient and the email address to forward to is the second recipient I set up.  This second recipient has an SMTP address which is outside the local domain (xxxx@verizon.net).  The recipient receives none of the mail sent to his local domain address.

Please try the following

1. Open the Internet Mail Service object in the Exchange Administrator program.  
2. Go to Internet Mail tab.  
3. Click the Advanced options button.  
4. Clear the checkbox for "Disable Automatic Replies to the Internet."  
5. Stop and restart the Internet Mail Service in Control Panel Services.

I agree..
Optionally, you could create a custom recipient in 5.5 give it an external address, and mail directly to it, this would prevent your server from retaining a copy.. (if that's what you're after..)  If you actually want to keep a copy on your server as well, then you have the correct approach..
