Please follow this

By default, this setting is set to $true and meeting requests that are forwarded to recipients in the remote domain generate a meeting forward notification to the meeting organizer. When this parameter is set to $false, meeting requests that are forwarded to recipients in the remote domain do not generate a meeting forward notification.

Please follow the above link and please do not use $false

The command should be
Get-MailboxCalendarSettings -Identity user1 | Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -RemoveForwardedMeetingNotifications $true

So with this setting, recipients of a meeting invite will not be able to forward it to anyone?
Just making sure :)
Swamped with email signature updates?

Have you been given a load of changes to make to your users’ email signatures? Having to manually implement multiple signatures for every department? Let Exclaimer save you from being swamped with email signature updates!

Hi, amku03.

It is impossible to prevent the forwarding of invites with Exchange/Outlook alone.  It might be possible with Microsoft's Information Rights Management tool or something similar, but I'm not an expert in that area so I can't say for sure.  Here's why it's impossible.  Once the recipient has added the appointment to their calendar they can do whatever they want with the item.  That includes saving the appointment as an iCal file and sending it to someone as an attachment.  If the VIP user doesn't want their invites forwarded, then they should tell recipients not to forward them or they'll take some sort of action against them.
