I am trying to figure out why outlook is forwarding emails on behalf of a different user, I have no rules setup to do so and nor does the person it is trying to send as? Can you assist ?

Are you on a domain? If so, have you checked the forwarding settings in Active Directory and/or Exchange System Manager?

99% sure this is server based, what exchange server and server environment are you using?

If you're in a domain; this is a setting within Exchange, you can set to forward to certain a certain email address when you right click -> properties on a mailbox.

2003 settings are in active directory 2007 and above settings in EMC, if you're hosting exchange the admin can make changes through an admin portal.

The forwarding can be set through server side too.

If you are using Exchange 2003, Go to Active Directory Users and Computer, Take properties of the user whose emails are being forward, Click Exchange General -> Delivery Options -> Check if 'forward to' is containing any address.

If you are using Exchange 2007 or 2010, Go to Exchange Management Console, Expand 'Recipient Configuration' and then click 'Mailbox'. Find the User mailbox whose emails are being forward. Take properties of the user, go to Mail Flow Settings tab, click Delivery Options, and then click Properties. Check if the 'forward to' is containing any address.

You must have access to the Exchange system and have exchange admin rights to make the changes.
