forwarding rule on cloud MBX#1 => cloud MBX#2 works okay

forwarding rule on cloud MBX#2 => on-premise MBX#3 works okay

forwarding rule on cloud MBX#1 => cloud MBX#2 => on-premise MBX#3 does not work (MBX#2 receives the forwarded mail from MBX#1 but MBX#3 does not receive the forwarded mail). Is it a normal behavior or there is way to achieve an email forwarding chain?

    Hi @Terry Chan ,
    The document shows that continuous forwarding cannot be made by creating inbox rules, and email messages can only be redirected once. For details, please refer to the documentation:
