User forwarding

Copper Contributor

So I have a question, a customer wants me to restore a users mailbox that was let go a year ago from the  last backup before they were let go, from a backup of their on prem exchange server.

Backup product is exchange aware and will export the mailbox as a pst for me.

If the user had setup a forward to another mailbox off site, will that show up in the restored PST file?

If the backup is restoring mailbox content only, no. The best you will be able to do is check if there are any Inbox rules configured to forward messages. If possible to restore the user object/properties as well, you will be able to see the standard "forwarding" settings.
Thanks I figured the same thing, just looking for confirmation.
