Enable External Email Forwarding From Microsoft 365

Did Microsoft 365 stop forwarding your emails into Re:amaze? Or are having trouble connecting your Microsoft 365 email to your account? If you're seeing any of the following errors, you'll need to enable external email forwarding from your Microsoft 365 admin.

Your message wasn't delivered because the recipient's email provider rejected it.
Remote Server returned '550 5.7.520 Access denied, Your organization does not allow external forwarding. Please contact your administrator for further assistance. AS(7555)'

Effective September 2020, Microsoft will automatically disable External Forwarding by default. Please see more here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/security/office-365-security/configure-the-outbound-spam-policy under the section "Expand Automatic forwarding". You will need to disable this security feature in order for emails to be forwarded to Re:amaze.
