Hi,

 

I am not sure if I am expecting too much from this rule.

 

I have the Enable Client Rules Forwarding Block enabled, and if I create a forwarding rule in Outlook (Desktop) it works as expected. However, if I open OWA>Settings>Mail>Accounts>Forwarding and enable forwarding here, the message gets forwarded OK, even with the Enable Client Rules Forwarding Block enabled.

 

Am I missing something?

 

Si

The block applies only to messages forwarded via Outlook rules. Not the generic Forwarding settings. For those, you can simply block the action as detailed for example here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/exovoice/2017/12/07/disable-automatic-forwarding-in-office-365-a...
