In Active Directory users and computers create a contact and then mail enable it right click exchange tasks mail enable  and assignt to it the external email address

then go to the user properties in ADUC delivery options and forward his mailbox to the just created contact, you can check "deliver to both" checkbox if needed

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

the auto forward rule in outlook would also require you to enable this within system manager delivery options

The less obvious way is to create a rule on the client side (using Outlook) to forward EVERY email that comes in to be redirected or forwarded to the external email account.

outlook side rules will show the email actually as FW:.....

the one on the exchange side will just send the email as it is received
