MC221119 Automatic forwarding - disabled per 1.12 - should it be active by now?

StephanG 811 Reputation points

Hi everyone,

in my message center there is a message:
"starting December 1st, 2020 the “Automatic” setting will be updated to “off”, i.e. external forwarding will not be allowed by default"

I already prepared the change in September so i was fine with it. So i checked with my mail account - i can still forward mail but i am not in one of the allowed groups. Is there any setting that can prevent it? Maybe in Exchange Online?

Best regards

    Ok, so there is an allowed group by a transport rule?

    If so, set to ON and let the rules dictate that.

    If automatic forwarding is blocked for everyone, then set to OFF

    I am not a real fan of the automatic setting, not sure it really works as expected.
