We all know that there is backend stuff in 365 that we can do to enable forwarding of a users mailbox to another individual/DL, and via powershell we can view/report on it. But what if the user enables it inside their own mailbox, how can we see that? or change it if need be? I dont see those setting in get-mailbox or get-inboxrule
My team often is tasked with doing this config however users of late are doing it themselves, fortunately we have safeguards to prevent auto-forwarding to external parties
so is this data visible via powershell?
How exactly is forwarding enabled by the end user? If he enables it via OWA settings, it's visible via Get-Mailbox properties. If he enables it via rules, it's visible via Get-InboxRules. Any other methods dont count as "native" and are not covered by the management tools, not much you can do there.
Setting it via OWA will be reflected, are you checking all the relevant properties? Here's a short article I wrote on this a while back: https://www.enowsoftware.com/solutions-engine/simplified-forwarding-settings-in-office-365
