You can try the following in PowerShell

foreach ($i in (Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited)) { Get-InboxRule -Mailbox $i.DistinguishedName | where {$_.RedirectTo -or $_.ForwardTo -and -not ($_.description -match "If the message") } | fl MailboxOwnerId,Description >> rules.txt }

Open in new window

I see bunch of these popping up. It that because the account it's checking doesn't have the rule?

Get-InboxRule : The term 'Get-InboxRule' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable
program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1 char:55
+ foreach ($i in (Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited)) { Get-InboxRule -Mailbox $i. ...
+                                                       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Get-InboxRule:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

I am sorry you can only use get-inboxrule for Exchange 2010 and beyond.
