I have tried a number of things like that, but without good results. I'm having a I-just-don't-get-it moment which I'm hoping will pass soon. I finally understood outbound rules this morning. I'm hoping for that understanding of inbound rules will follow soon.

For example a (redacted) error

Requested URL      http://our.server:80/third/third/third/third/third/third/third/third/third/third/third/third/au/mz
Physical Path      C:\web\projects\third\third\third\third\third\third\third\third\third\third\third\third\au\mz

I don't want it to resolve to a physical path. I want it to resolve to a third party site. And what's with all the third repeats? The original request was http://our.server:80/third/au/mx which I want to resolve to

And then there's all the links to the thirdparty that will need to get rewritten as links to our.server ... but that's another story.
