As long as the finance group has a proper SMTP address name@domain.com then John can send them a message.  

To add john to the finance group you need to create a contact record for John and then add that contact record to the finance group.  John would then receive messages sent to the finance group.

you also need to disable the require authenticated users option on the group in 2010
Set-DistributionGroup <group> -RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled

Create a contact for the Outside person. Then allow that person to the allowed senders for that Distribution list.

Under the Exchange General TAB in the DL's properties.
Then check Accept messages > Only FROM:
Add just the people/contacts that can send to it.

Add the contact to the distro list... so he gets copies.
