We have a handful of users that require a company email address and have all emails forwarded to an external address; usually they are third-party contractors and only need email.

Since these users never login to a workstation and may or may not log into OWA, their passwords will expire.

When the password expires, will the forwarding stop?

No, the forwarding will not stop. They simply would not be able to log directly into their company mailbox using Outlook/OWA. So no worries!
