Mail Forwarding Outlook
Anyone at risk of stalking or abuse online should check that their private emails are not being forwarded to a perpetrator, without their knowledge.
Some perpetrators set up mail forwarding on email accounts to give them access to the person’s emails.
This means, a copy of all emails are sent to the perpetrator without the email user’s knowledge.
There are simple steps to check whether mail forwarding has been set up. Here is how to check on Outlook 365
Go to your Inbox
Click on the gear icon in the top right
Under “Your app settings”, select Mail
Under accounts, select “Forwarding”
A perpetrator’s email address can also be blocked.
