Hello,

Since there is no transport settings we can use the RBAC policy to prevent users for messages forwarding question - see http://community.office365.com/en-us/f/148/t/23307.aspx for how to do it.

Get-Mailbox | fl name,legacyExchangedn for the attribute you need.
Can export it to a file by adding > c:\file.txt to the cmdlet or add export-csv switch.

i thought to cancel we would use something like

o cancel the email forwarding, you can use the cmdlet below:

Set-Mailbox -Identity <mailbox@mydomain.com> -DeliverToMailboxAndForward $false -ForwardingSMTPAddress $null

This cmdlet should be able to work.

but thats for one user

Not very sure if user cannot set it afterwards.

The cmdlet deactivates it only and the delivertomailboxandforward mentions only if in case messages are forwarded they should be or not also kept in the recipient's mailbox.

The RBAC is used because simply the users are forbidden to use the autoforward settings.

You can also create a transport rule to reject all automated messages, but it will include OOF.

If you want to use it against all mailboxes, do this:

Get-Mailbox  | Set-Mailbox -DeliverToMailboxAndForward $false -ForwardingSMTPAddress $null

Open in new window


To get the LegacyDN for all users, do this:

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | select Name,Alias,UserPrincipalName,LegacyExchangeDN | export-csv -nti c:\legacydn.csv

Open in new window
