So after a bit of research I've come to the conclusion that Outlook has a sort of built-in protection that prevents automatically forwarding mails that come with a "FW:" or "RE:" in the title. Probably to prevent mail storms or something.

Is there a way to disable this security feature? I desperately need to forward emails like these.

Alternatively a VBA code to forward these mails could work, though what I've found here would need to be tweaked:
1. It doesn't forward attachments
2. It doesn't put a copy of the sent mail in the sent folder
3. It's not easily identifiable that the mail was actually forwarded. I've been using the Last Verb Exec Type & Time fields to format forwarded mails.

Hope someone can help me.
 
Others have reported that, but I don't forward enough to verify its true. A macro can forward them -but Outlook needs to be running 24/7 for it to work.

Forwarding shouldn't cause mailstorms (or they should be rare), because most forwarding is to another address you own.

You want the same behavior as when you hit the forward button?
The macro in the article you found would need one line changed and some removed
Code:
Sub SendNew(Item As Outlook.MailItem)
 
Dim objMsg As MailItem
Set objMsg = item.Forward

' do you need to update the subject ?
'objMsg.Subject = Item.Subject

objMsg.Recipients.Add "alias@domain.com"

objMsg.Send

End Sub

Then there is this - needs the CC code removed - but this will do it.
 
Thanks, that seems to work like a charm!
