Distribution list will not accept external email

I create a distribution list with smtp address. Internal user can email the 
distribution list without any problem. However, external user cannot email 
the distribution list. When an external user email the distribution list the 
email get retun with delivery failure.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
 BD

I've read some of the other posts on this problem, but nothing I've tried seems to work. Here's the background. I'm using Outlook 2000 (SP-3).
