Outlook allows users to set up rules to auto-forward emails to any valid SMTP email address. Allowing auto-forwarding to external reciepents compromises the protection of sensitive information including intellectual property. While it is convenience to have all your e-mails in one place – Forwarding company e-mail for example to a personal webmail account is huge security risk and increases the potential for data leakage.
