Forwarding rule only works to own domain.

When I setup a forward rule on a mailbox the forwarding only works for addresses in our own domain.
It's a rule which applies to every mail that arrives.

Am I overlooking something realy easy?

Kind regards,

    From Outlook Rule:

    You have to create Contact for the external email addresses and then you can forward mail to external email address.

    From Exchange server:
    If you want to forward mails to other email addresses(other that your domain) then you need to make contacts for those Email address in AD with their email addresses(external domains email addresses) and then you can place that contact in forwarding field to forward mails to other domain email addresses.

    By default, forwarding is disabled in Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003, you need to enable it from Exchange System Manager - Global Settings -
