 All RFC's and finger pointing aside.. Exchange 2003 doesn't do this by default. Check your configuration, specifically at the mailbox restrictions that you may have setup. If you have restrictions set as to who can email certain addresses in your domain, this would cause the same results as your problem.

 This configuration is found in your user configuration in AD, under 'Exchange General' and 'Delivery Restrictions'.

 Good luck..
