It only works on addresses inside the domain.    Outlook 2007 works fine.  Any ideas where the breakdown is occurring.

You need to setup the server to allow Out Of Office replies.
Have a read through this document which should answer your question for you (can be set per user or per domain):

This is the way Exchange 2007 is configured by default out the box.

You need to alter the setting on the OOF configuration for all domains (*) to allow OOF for legacy servers and users (2003).

Org Config --> Hub Transport --> Remote Domain --> Select the third option box "Allow external out-of-office messages and out-of-office messages set by Outlook 2003....

This will then allow your legacy clients to use OOF facilities as well as 2007 users.
