Microsoft is at present doing work on a new update that will alter the way in which emails are forwarded in the two Workplace 365 and Exchange On line.

At present messages forwarded utilizing the Basic Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) or mailbox forwarding are rewritten so that they come from the forwarding mailbox. 

Having said that, Microsoft is at present doing work on a new electronic mail improve that will see messages that are autoforwarded (or redirected) in Workplace 365 rewritten utilizing the Sender Rewriting Plan (SRS).

In accordance to a new submit in the Microsoft 365 Roadmap, the cause for this alter is to consolidate the rewriting habits for all forwarded or relayed messages in Exchange On line.

Sender Rewriting Plan

In a new guidance doc, Microsoft discussed that SRS operation was included to Workplace 365 to take care of a issue in which autoforwarding is incompatible with the Sender Policy Framework (SPF).

This new SRS feature rewrites the P1 From handle (also regarded as the Envelope From handle) for all relevant messages that are despatched externally from Workplace 365. As a consequence of this alter, deliverability of messages that go SPF checks when they get there from the first sender but then fall short SPF at the ultimate external destination following they are forwarded has been enhanced.

However while, because of to changes in habits, disruptions could manifest. For occasion, forwarded messages will no extended be rewritten when despatched to a customer’s on-premises servers.

Microsoft will start off utilizing SRS to rewrite all messages forwarded utilizing SMTP or mailbox forwarding starting in October, so if you’re forwarded emails will not get there at their ultimate destination at that time, this could be the cause why.
