Please stop the forwarding notification.
Could you tell us a little more about your scenario? We have this feature enabled so that hackers don’t turn on forwarding without you knowing, and we think that most users who want to forward their email from this account will not be using this email account each day. Is there a special case where you want to forward your email but still use this account frequently?

Because of the permanent forwarding email with copy messanges in the mailbox we no need web notification about forwarding!!! Make in please and inform us at once about ir!!!!
Please, please, please IT IS THE MOST FRIKKING ANOYYING NOTIFICATION EVERRRRR!!! The proper and already available choices will avoid mistakes for user that "forget" they are forwardin email if they choose: 1. keeping a copy of forwarded mail 2. not deleting invites after acepting them.
After reading around, and mind my fruitfull imagination and speculation, since I'm a literature major. It would rather seems some ******* (probably very priviledge) high on the food chain in MS decided to play stupid and avoid responsability for missing meetings AND the offended party decided to impose the all encompassing solution of messing the forwarding service for the rest of us. Or something of the sorts. Could you guys figure how to hanlde priviledge punks without messing Outlook for the rest of us? Thank you so very much. End of rant. :D Respecfully yours, Dr. T.

I like to forward my company email to my Gmail as a backup in case something happens I need to recover. Every time I use the web app and switch to my calendar or back to my inbox I get the notification. Every time. This single issue will likely discourage me from using the web app and just use the outlook program on my computer.
Please give us the option to turn off this notification.
Admin has made all users forward but the user turn off it and all the mails do not forward so it cannot be monitored.
This is the most horrible feature ever build in the entire universe. IS SO ANNOYING!
I agree with everyone!
One example, we were purchased by a new company, and our email address changed. We want to get any emails sent to our original email address forwarded to our new email address. It's on permanently until everyone knows to email us at our new email address, which could take months. The forwarding notification pop-up several times a day is frustrating to see every day for the foreseeable future.
I agree with all the others who have explained why this is so annoying. Please give an option to turn it off or limit the reminder to once a week. Seriously - get it DONE!
It's very annoying for me as well. I have multiple accounts forwarding to one, and I don't need this notification every single time. Less often could be better, or only notifying the first X times after a new address is added. If it's every time, it will just be background noise after some time, rendering it useless.
I also want to stop the notification. I set up the email forwarding, on purpose, to retain a record of my correspondence after losing everything at a previous job once the contract ended (no warning was given that my email would expire, and I lost 14 years worth of professional correspondence).
I set up the forwarding as a backup. You may say 'Well yes, we back it up for you', but you don't, you back it up for the company. Relationships, collaborations, ideas, kind feedback from students, everything disappears when I am erased from the system. The only alternative to losing it all is to set up email forwarding, so that I have a record of work emails after my employment ends.
So this is why I forward my emails, and also why there's no need to obstruct my use of other features by hiding them under a popup. You can popup as much as you like if you would only do it in a less inconvenient place. Maybe you can put it in the list of notifications and just leave it there, such that unless it's cleared, it is a notification that just stays there in the list to remind us without popping up again.

I am using outlook since a few months now and every single time i log in, with this notification appearing, my experience with this app starts with annoyance.
Someone on this thread complained about this feature in 2018. I wonder how he is coping up with this annoyance.
I would have never used outlook if I weren't forced to by our organization.
In two years you guys haven't addressed your customer's pain point. Shameful.
It's so annoying. Could you please at least reduce the frequency of the popup? Why is there no way to turn the notification off? This will be probably a main reason if we have a vote to move away from Microsoft.
Agree with other comments. The pop-up is very annoying. It happens everytime I login or refresh the screen.
I work for an MSP and I forward client messages to my main work account for notifications and monitoring, but if I want to reply I login to the client account and get slapped by the notifications.
Please create an option to disable or timeout.

Why as this issue yet to be resolved? Please stop the insulting and equally annoying "forwarding" notification .
This notification is annoying. Its just good programming to be able to quieten notification features, otherwise they just become noise!
David Stevens commented
Turn off the notification. Weekly, sure. Not every time, please.
The explanation offered above is almost insulting: "it is not feasible to turn off the notification" and "As a workaround, you can click “x” to turn off the notification."
I am very aware of the fact that I am forwarding, thank you. Now, would you please take the useless notifications away from my face. There's nothing more annoying and unproductive than to remove than over and over again.
The notification constantly blocks buttons, f.e. in the calendar view.
It simply has to die... horribly!
What law am I breaking by DARING to forward my Office 365 emails to a non Office 365 account, such that Microsoft has deemed it necessary to shove this notification down my throat every... single... time? Did it ever occur to Microsoft that some may want this feature enabled as an email backup system? It is SO incredibly annoying to have this 'earth is spinning of its axis', 'sky is falling', 'we're all gonna die' warning continualy shoved in my face - all because Microsoft is to arrogant to think anyone would EVER want or need to read one of its emails outside their perfect and flawless little world of perfection, virtue and grace.
