By default automatic replies, automatic forwards and Out of Office to Internet recipients are disabled in Exchange 2000 Server and in Exchange Server 2003.

See Microsoft's Knowledge base article 266166 for further details
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/266166/en-us

Once enabled it should then work.

The step by step instructions for forwarding to an external account can be found at the following website.

Have you check SMTP logs to see what happened when your server tries to send messages to GMAIL?  This is a good place to start - it is much easier to diagnose problem when you have the log results.

Is your server/IP have good standing?  Namely, is your IP/domain blacklisted?  Good to check this too

Finally, if you want to send to more than one external acct, create distribution group, add external contacts in that group. Messages sent to the distribution group will be forward to all group's members.

Sorry I missed the last line when reading your problem

The logs are normally stored at

%windir%\system32\Logfiles

Are you able send to gmail? (Without implementing the forwarding)
Are the messages being sent to gamil being filtered and placed in the "Spam" folder?

Yes I am normaly able to forward from OWA to gmail.

The mail r not going to the spam folder in my gmail when autoforwarded as they r not also going to the spam when manuall forwarding to my gmail account.
