Use an exchange account with an external account simultaneously in outlook

Im running Exchange Server 2003, and need to use the exchange address with an external address simultaneosly.

My problem right now is that the emails sent to a recipient in my domain, never reach the internet mail, so if the recipient is not connected to the domain, he never receives the email.

What can i do?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

i might not be able to understand your question completely but what i understand that you have a recipient which have two addresses one for internal and other is external on the internet and you want to send an email on its internal address and want it to be deliverd on internet address as well.

to do this create a contact and assing it a smtp address (which is external address) and then configure that user's properties to forward emails to that contact and also keep a copy of the message.

to configure forward address go to user's properties and on exchange general tab there is delivery options and select the contact in Forward to box also select the check box saying Deliver messages to both forwarding address and mailbox
