Exchange - trouble forwarding mail to Distro Group

Hello,

  We are trying to send "Alerts" from SharePoint to a distribution list (eventually All users).  Since SharePoint 2010 does not support this natively we are having to get creative in our attempts to complete this.

We are running Exchange 2013.  The SharePoint Alert sends a message to user sharepointalerts@domain.com.  We have configured a Redirect rule on that mailbox to redirect the message to a distribution group.  However, when the message hits the user mailbox, it is not getting redirected to the Distro group.

We have the same problem if we choose to setup forwarding on the mailbox to the distribution group.  The message hits the mailbox and nothing is ever sent to the Distro group.  If we configure it to send to individuals the messages will send.

I've tried setting this up in the web UI through UAC, through the end user rules as well as through Powershell which many articles say is the only way this will work.

However, nothing seems to work.  Thoughts, Ideas?

It was the Allow senders outside of my org property that was the problem.  We did eventually figure that out yesterday afternoon.
