Out of Office Message with Rule (send template) - only works on in house email

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
When I turn on my out of office message (with a rule - the rule is setup with a template to reply to all incoming email received in my inbox), the auto reply works within my company.  But when I test it from outside, it does not work.  Could this be a setting within our Exchange Server (which I think is 2003)?  I am running Outlook 2007..  I tested it from my yahoo and gmail accounts but never received the auto reply.
