    Exchange 2010: Can you see who is forwarding?

    Hello all,
    I wonder if anyone knows of a way to check and see if a user has an automated forwarder set on their mailbox which points to an external address without signing into their account? Its come to our attention that some staff may have this setup as practice and need to sort it out asap.

    Thanks all

    You should be able to list mailboxes with rules to forward or redirect, using the following:

    Code:
    $mailboxlist=get-mailbox; $mailboxlist | foreach {Get-InboxRule -Mailbox $_} | where {$_.RedirectTo -or $_.ForwardTo} | fl MailboxOwnerId, Name, ForwardTo, RedirectTo

    thank you for that. It is doing the trick but wonder if you can point it at users in a certain OU or exchange database?

    Thanks again

    Which version of Exchange are you running? In Exchange 2010 you can disable this at the route level: Organization Config - Hub Transport - Remote Domains - Default - Message Format - untick "Allow automatic forwards"

    You can limit the lookup to an OU, by using the -OrganizationalUnit switch on the Get-Mailbox command e.g.

    Code:
    $mailboxlist=get-mailbox -organizationalunit "<OU to search>"; $mailboxlist | foreach {Get-InboxRule -Mailbox $_} | where {$_.RedirectTo -or $_.ForwardTo} | fl MailboxOwnerId, Name, ForwardTo, RedirectTo
