How to undo Set-Mailbox -Identity Command

Hello World,

How does one undo the following command in Exchange Management Console:

Set-Mailbox -Identity John -DeliverToMailboxAndForward $true -ForwardingSMTPAddress manuel@contoso.com

I found it on this page: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb123981(v=exchg.150).aspx

I was hoping to CLI it like in Cisco. Apparently, its not as easy.

Appreciate the help in advance.

Thanks !

No, that's not correct.

It will not deliver to the mailbox but continue forwarding.

I'd like for it to deliver mail normally but not forward.
