That's the client side - removing the corresponding options from OWA. Outlook doesn't expose a forwarding option, so user usually configure forwarding via rules there - you can block them by following the steps in this article:

thanks for your reply.


But i don't see there is a option "3. The message type is... "Auto-Forward" "


please advise.




You are looking at the wrong place. Select the "message properties" condition, then Automatic replies.

Many thanks for your reply...

The first screenshot is basically the old Options page for OWA. It has been replaced since few years back, but it's still available/accessible.

For new apply , is it possible to switch it back to OWA ?

The are both OWA. And they both have the forwarding settings available, look under the Accounts section.
