    Outlook 2K and Palm - with Out of Office Asst

    I have Outlook 2000 on an Exchange 5.5 platform. I also have a Palm VII. When I put the Out of Office Assistant on I setup a rule that would forward any mail to my Palm. For some reason, it doesn't work. I can send email directly to my palm or I can forward to another email address on our network. I'm not sure why it doesn't work with the Palm since in reality it's just another email address (posy@palm.net). Any thoughts? Thanks!

    I'm sorry if I'm a little slow. If I understand you correctly -- this means that we can NEVER send out of office mail to an internet address? Only to internal email addresses. Is that true?
    Thanks!

    right, you can't use out of office replies to forward mail to the internet.

    you can speak with the admin and see if they'll enable it, but most will not because of problems with mail loops.

    One possible workaround...if your Exchange Admin will allow it, is to create a custom recipient on Exchange with your palm address. Then the Internet Mail Connector thinks you're sending to a "trusted" account and will forward the mail via the out of office assistant.
