VB script to forward Outlook emails to my gmail acct

My work currently has Autoforward off to external addresses. We have blackberrys and I dont want to carry around my blackberry all the time. I want to have all my emails forwarded to my gmail account. I relize I cant reply back with my work address but thats ok. I most likely wont be replying back, just reading them. So I heard you can import a vbscript that gets around the exchange server setting. Can this be done? If so, please provide how, thanks!

What you are asking is for information on how to circumvent your companies security policy. I am sure that this is against EE rules to provide such info.

Secure email forward. It only works while I have Outlook open but that is sufficient for me.

Well I also found this website that users were looking to do the same thing. You might want to figure out how to block this from your network as well if it is truly bothering you that bad.
This worked for me which I use instead of the add-in piece from Sperry. The add-in is $17 bucks. The VBscript is free and both do the same thing. Not sure if you have capability to block vbscript from users Outlook but then again how many of your average users are going to use it...
Im an IT admin but not the Exchange admin so I dont have access to make changes directly on server.
