Do you have a rule setup to forward incoming email to an external email account? If not, what setting did in Outlook did you make your changes in?

I figured it out. You have to create a contact for the person in exchange management tool before you can setup the redirect.

Correct ,you need to create the contact with Exteral E-mail Address , Hide the created contact on Global Address List and then set the tab to forward the e-mails to both mailbox and external e-mail address.
