I thought i would just throw this topic out to see how others are handling it.

My company has been allowing our users to forward the company email to 3rd party email addresses (ie aol, gmail, yahoo etc). This was a practice that was in place before i got here; however, recently (especially after the company has grown) we've started to think of this as somewhat of a security and liability issue as we're allowing users to send company email to lord knows where.

I'm just curious how other email administrators handle this? Do you let you users forward their emails to external addresses? I don't think there is a way to disable email forwarding under mail filters is there?

just curious about other's thoughts.

I don't think it is possible in Kerio.

But we have a client that prevents forwarding rules to external e-mail addresses (option in Exchange 2007). It makes sense if you receive lots of confidential information via e-mail.

We have a (large) customer who prohibits forwarding of mail to external addresses by policy only. I.e. there is no technology in place to stop the forwarding, only a written policy everyone has to sign. They handle quite a lot of confidential information, but they elected to spend money on education instead of technology. Probably a smarter choice in the long run. You can disable forwarding in Outlook with Group Policy (if I recall correctly (which I tend not to)), but there's always webmail ...
