What else do I need to know?

  • If you don't see the Forwarding tab under Accounts, forwarding may not be available for your account. You may be able to set up forwarding using Inbox rules. For more information, see Use rules in Outlook Web App to automatically forward messages to another account.

  • If you keep a copy of forwarded messages, you should check your Outlook Web App account regularly to make sure you haven't exceeded your mailbox size limit (1 TB). If the size limit is exceeded new messages may not be forwarded.
