  • Hello,

    By default, the automatic forwarding is blocked in exchange 2010 for outlook clients.

    If you create a outlook rule on forwarding, please delete the outlook rule to check the result.

    Here is the similar thread for your reference.

      As you want to block the single user, check with the following :

    1. Click on "Manage Rules and Alert" in Outlook.
    2. Uncheck the box next to the rule you wish to turn off.
    3. Click OK, the rule will still remain in the list because we can turn back on when need.

  • Hello,

    Please try to use transport rule to do it.

    From people; send to people; when the subject field contains specific words(FW);delete the message without notifying anyone or send rejection message to sender with enhanced code.

  • If you wish for all Users, you can do it organization wide on Remote Domains.

    Disable "Allow automatic Forward" under Message Format.
