If you enable the Out of Office Assistant in Outlook 2007 (in conjunction with Exchange, of course), it is set as default to reply to messages whether received internally or externally. With Outlook 2010, you can stipulate different responses (or lack thereof) between internal and external received messages with the Automatic Replies feature.

Make sure that you go to the Outside My Organization tab in the Automatic Replies window and check the Auto-reply to people outside my organization checkbox and put in an appropriate message accordingly.
