  • Forwarding mails using OWA

    Hello,

    When a user is on a holiday I want them to set an out of the office message and a forward to their colleague.

    I found that this is fairly easy by using the OWA.

    Question :
    is there a way to restrict that the forward address can only be an address on the same domain ?

    I would like to avoid this to be used by someone to forward any mail to a gmail, hotmail etc. account

        OK, this tells you how to ALLOW external OOF replies, so I guess reverse the setting in step 4....

          I am sorry that I might not have made myself clear.

          It is not the out of the office reply that I want to restrict.

          It is making a forward to an off-domain e-mail address which I want to restrict

          So you can make a forward from [email protected] to [email protected] but not to [email protected]

            At the same location where the provided link tells you to configure OOF is another option for "Allow automatic forward". Unchecking this option will prevent users from forwarding (externally only if I remember correct). If you want to enable this feature for special domains you can just create another rule set specifically for this domain.

              Also set up (human) policies to disallow such forwarding and appropriate sanctions if someone does so
