I cannot automatically forward mails to external addresses using rule

I created a rule to forward mails to my hotmail. I didn't specify any 
condition, so that it should forward all  new messages. I works if I use an 
internal address to forward. But it is not working for external addresses. Our 
mail server is Exchange 2000 and client is Outlook 2000. Please help me to 
solve this problem.
