Hi @RogerRoger-2394

According to the link, "MessageSubject" isn't an available parameter when using the Start-HistoricalSearch command.
And you may also need to specify a value to the SenderAddress or RecipientAddress or MessageID parameter to create this search.

In this case, I suppose you may need to pull all the messages sent by the users in your tenant (you can add *@contoso.com to the SenderAddress parameter)
And then filter the result with the specific message subject.
For forwarded messages, by default the subject should be "FW: TEST1".

In addition, it can also be done using the Message trace feature in Exchange Admin Center.
Here is the direct link to it: https://admin.exchange.microsoft.com/#/messagetrace
