I just installed the e-mail server component (smtp,pop3) in a windows 2003 server. Currently i am sending emails from another server in another network that does not have access to the internet, no dsn setup and it is in a workgroup through an application they have.  When i recieve the emails in the windows 2003 server, which i handle through outlook express, i created a rule to forward these emails to gmail.  The problems with this is that it requires outlook express to be open. Is there anything that i could to relay these emaisl to gmail automatically in the windws server.  Or maybe another method.

Yes you can.
1) On the exchange server open Active Directory Users and Computers, then create a new 'Contact'. this new contact will for the gmail account so be sure to use that external email address when creating the contact.
2) Then for the active directory user, the one you login to outlook for, go to the exchange general tab
3) Delivery Options --> click forward to --> select the contact we just created --> click the box for deliver messages to both forwarding address and mailbox.
4) Done

I don't have an exchange server. We only installed the smtp,pop3 server component.
