Forwarding rule continues to apply itself after being deleted

When on vacation, a rule was applied to have email from one particular person
sent to another email address. The rule was removed after vacation, yet the
mail from that person continues to be forwarded. I have checked the forward
recipient's mail, and there is nothing out of the ordinary.

Our company president is having the same problem. He thinks he created a
rule to forward his email to a cruise ship address when he went on vacation 2
weeks ago. When he returned he couldn't figure out how to stop the
forwarding. I looked through all his rules, turned them ALL off, rebooted,
and the messages are still forwarding. Thankfully, the forwarding is
unsuccessful since the ship's email address was only valid during his cruise
and it has since been disabled. This causes the emails to bounce back to his
main account.

Is the account your mail was being forwarded to also a "temporary" account
or is it still active? Just curious - another data point as I try to debug
this problem.

Also - Does anyone know of any other way to forward emails in OUTLOOK? I
know it could not have been set on the mail server, as he has no idea how to
login to it. We are not using exchange, we use an ISP hosted mail server.

No, the forward email address is another employee's, is still in existance,
and that person is still getting the emails. We're guessing that it is
"stuck" on the server somehow, as there is no other explanation. When a
person places a rule on his email account, it needs to somehow be generated
by the server to know where to send the forward. At least that's what sounds
logical to me.
