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?
This notification is annoying. Its just good programming to be able to quieten notification features, otherwise they just become noise!

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.

Allow users to TURN THIS NOTIFICATION OFF!
As stated by others, I don't mind an occasional notification (weekly, monthly, ...) but the every time the page loads seems rather excessive. One would think that if you click the X, it could could set a cookie to not remind you until the after the next reasonable time period.
I don't mind being reminded periodically (it is a good security step, just overdone), but set a cookie and only do it once every 24 hours or even once a week or something.
Right now if I X out the notification and refresh the screen it pops up again immediately. GRRR!
I use a separate account as a backup as well. I get work emails through outlook and personal elsewhere, but sometimes I can't remember which account it came through on so it's easier to have it all on my "elsewhere".
Please stop with this forward notification
Hi Outlook moderator! Here is a description of my use scenario:
I go to the art academy in Oslo, and we use outlook365 for the student email, but I also forward everything I recieve to my gmail. This is why:
I only get access to mailing lists and the automatic contact database through outlook365, so it's a better tool for workflow - but when my education ends, I lose access to everything. That means I risk losing important contacts, contracts, information, agreements, reviews, etc etc etc. Professionally, the art field is highly network-dependent, so it's very bad to lose stuff.
The easiest way to implement archiving is forwarding stuff to my gmail account. It's almost like a backup, where I don't risk the IT department on a whim will ***** stuff up for me, and I can easily access stuff in situations where I can get into my gmail, but not my outlook-account. It has come up in a couple of situations.
I fully understand the security reason for putting the warning there, but it's seriously annoying. It's like a small poke with a needle at the start of every workday, which I'm sure sounds over-dramatical, but try it out for yourself for a months time. It get's under your skin more quickly than you would think.
Okay... So Microsoft is working on a less obtrustive notification, great. That doesn't answer the question of why Microsoft feels it necessary to bombard users with such a notification in the first place. Especially annoying is the whole doom and gloom red triangle with an exclamation point in it which Microsoft uses only when there is a problem. So... What, exactly, is the problem with auto-forward? Is it illegal? If not, then what gives? Also VERY annoying is that Microsoft has chosen to completely disregard the fact that I nave ALL notifications disabled - yet still bypasses my settings to continually shove this unwanted notification down my throat, over... and... over... and... over... and... over... and... over... again. Sheesh... Enough already.
This is insanely annoying! Another terrible decision by Microsoft. This would never happen with google or apple. I do not need a warning every single time I log in! Maybe, maybe once a year.

Stupid that MS decides and not the user. When creating the forwarding, add a tick box to select whether the alerts are on or off.
This is notification is incredibly stupid annoying! I'm well aware that I turned on this option.
Hello Microsoft - Thank You! I am very well aware that I am forwarding, and I wish to continue. Unless I am violating some policy, then kindly eliminate this annoyance.

Please stop the "forwarding" notification.
