auto-forwarding meeting requests: rule doesn't work

We created a rule in Outlook 2010 to forward incoming e-mail "which is a meeting request" to an external e-mail address. As that's only possible for existing contacts, there's a corresponding contact in the GAL holding the external e-mail address.
No matter what we do, the rule simply won't work.

I would use delegates, but I understand that will only work among local users.

We're running a Small Business Server 2011 Std. in German. The server is relatively new and hasn't been messed around with [yet], so I don't think we screwed up anything.

And idea where we're missing it?

By default, when you configure on your Exchange server external domains, forward from clients are blocked, maybe this is your problem.

Splendid! Enabling automatic forwards to the external domain in question did the trick!
I didn't know they had to be enabled explicitely.

Thanks!

Do you wish that you could place an email signature under a reply? Well, unfortunately, you can't. That great Exchange/Office 365 signature you've created will just appear at the bottom of an email chain. What a pain! Is there really no way to solve this? Well, there might be...

Exchange server is not supported in any cloud-hosted platform (other than Azure with Azure Premium Storage).
ADCs have gained traction within the last decade, largely due to increased demand for legacy load balancing appliances to handle more advanced application delivery requirements and improve application performance.
