Only under very explicit conditions. If yo're both using Windows Server 2003

and Information Rights Management, then it's possible. Otherwise, no.

Try this:

First, create the custom form:

1. Create a new message

2. Tools | Forms | Design This Form

3. Click on the Actions tab

4. Double click on "Forward" and "Reply to All" and disable them

5. Click on the Properties tab

6. Check "Send form definition with item"

7. Tools | Forms | Publish Form As

8. In the "Look In" field, choose your personal forms library and give it a

name such as "NoReplyAllOrForward"

At step 7, you could also File | Save As and save the form as an OFT in the

filesystem.

Then, send mail to others using the custom form:

1. Tools | Choose Form (or double-click the OFT you saved on your hard

drive)

2. In the "Look In" field, choose your personal forms library

3. A new mail message will come up. If you went to Tools | Forms | Design

This Form, the changes you made above would be visible.

4. Type in the recipients/subject/body/etc and send the message

Now when the people you sent the mail to open it, the "Reply All" and

"Forward" buttons will not be available on the toolbar. Similarly, the

keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl+F will not work.

Of course this doesn't go nearly as far as true IRM, since the recipient

could still copy the contents from the mail and paste it into a new one and

forward that around. This is more useful as a "gentle reminder" not to "me

too" reply all to a large mailing list, or not to forward something

semi-private.

Asking a question?

Please tell us the version of the application you are asking about,

your OS, Service Pack level

and the FULL contents of any error message(s)

Would all of this setup (to define and include a form within the e-mail)

only work if you could guarantee the recipient was also using Outlook?
