Fix Recommendation

Install a configuration profile to prevent Exchange messages from being moved or forwarded between email accounts.

Check Contents

Review configuration settings to confirm "Allow messages to be moved" is disabled.

This check procedure is performed on both the Apple iOS management tool and the Apple iOS device.

Note: If an organization has multiple configuration profiles, the check procedure must be performed on the relevant configuration profiles applicable to the scope of the review.

In the Apple iOS management tool, verify "Allow messages to be moved" is unchecked under the Exchange payload.

Alternatively, verify the text "<key>PreventMove</key><true/>" appears in the configuration profile (.mobileconfig file).

On the Apple iOS device:
1. Open the Settings app.
2. Tap "General".
3. Tap "Profiles & Device Management".
4. Tap the Configuration Profile from the Apple iOS management tool containing the Exchange policy.
5. Tap "Accounts".
6. Tap the name of the Exchange account.
7. Verify "Prevent Move" is set to "Yes".

If "Allow messages to be moved" is checked in the Apple iOS management tool, "<key>PreventMove</key><false/>" appears in the configuration profile, or the Exchange policy on the Apple iOS device from the Apple iOS management tool has "Prevent Move" set to "No", this is a finding.
