Block External Users sending to Internal Distribution List

Hi Experts,

I have set our Exchange 2010 SP3 to prevent external users to send to our internal Distribution List. In fact, the default is to Require that all senders are authenticated under Message Delivery Restrictions. However, this isn't working at the moment. I also have tried to create Transport Rules with the condition for messages outside the organization destined to members of a certain DL forward to a moderator. This works fine if the email is emailed directly to the DL email address itself but if the email is sent directly to the email address of an individual user it will be quarantined for approval which is not really what we want. Any ideas what's causing this?
