Outlook 2003 rules for external incoming / external outgoing using Exchange 2003

I would like to create a rule to forward all external incoming mail and external outgoing mail to an internal address.

The key here is, I don't want to forward any internal incoming mail, but only external email using rules. Is there an easy way to do this within Outlook 2003?

We are using Exchange 2003 for internal and external email's.

Thanks

Hi john_s99,

I don't see any way to do this.  There is no message property that identifies it as being internal or external and therefore no means of building a rule or rules.  The closest I think you could get for incoming messages would be to use the "sender is in specified Address Book" condition.  The problem with this is that you'd have to have an entry for every address an external message would come from, and that's not practical.  Outbound messages might be easier, but it'd require a conscious action on your part each time.  We might be able to do it using a custom macro, but once again I don't think the approach is especially practical.  Sorry.

Cheers!

Apply the rule to all messages but use the ""sender is in specified Address Book" condition as an exception.
