    Outlook Rule Won't Forward (Outlook 2k SP3)

    I'm running Outlook 2k SP3 and current MS patches on my Win98 SE system. I've made a rule that doesn't seem to forward email properly. I know the rule is grabbing the specified emails, because I can add an extra (AND) clause that causes all matched emails to get moved to a specified folder. The moving happens, but the forwarding action does not take place.
    The simplified rule (without the move to folder) is:

    Apply this rule after the message arrives
    with name@domain.com in the senders address
    forward it to othername@domain.com

    Are there any security patches that may have broken this rule? I know I used to be able to forward emails with no problems . . .

    Thanks,
    Carl

    I believe there is a setting on Exchange to allow/disallow forwarding to external addresses. This is usually for reasons of emails being bounced from an address which becomes unavailable (ie. email is forwarded, gets an NDR which is forwarded by the rule, etc)
    This may have been changed due to recent virus activity?

    I am only running Outlook (corporate install) on my system, getting mail from my ISP. I can occasionally get an email to forward (using this rule) but not many and not often. There may be something else (since I don't use Exchange) that has changed or broken.

    Thanks,
    Carl
