That method does work. 
It is key that the external address is the default address on the Email
addresses tab AND is the email address listed on the Exchange general
tab. If that is not the case then it causes an internal email loop
(which Exchange catches thankfully).

Supposedly, what you can do is create a contact, give it it two smtp
addresses, one for the fulano@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and one for external
fulano1@xxxxxxxxxx The external should be the primary SMTP (yahoo). I've
never tested this but there are articles I've read that says this works.
If this does work, the issue I see is if a user internal sends it email,
you will get an error something to the effect; a configuration error
between two servers cause this message...Test and let me know if it
works externally and internally.

Hello All,
  We have an issue implementing email forwards that work internally and
externally.  The only way we have gotten this to work is to 1) add a
contact for the personal email, 2) add an email enabled user account
that forwards to the contact from step #1.  We would like to know if
others have found a way to achieve this without creating users with
  We want to offer an email forward to alumni.  An alumni account, eg
fulano@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:fulano@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> , would forward
to their personal email, eg fulano1@xxxxxxxxx <mailto:fulano1@xxxxxxxxx>
.  The fulano@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:fulano@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>  account
should work when used on or off campus.  We are an Exchange 2003 SP1
Thanks, Robert
