sending email & attachment that CAN'T be forwarded

I am using Outlook Express. Is it possible to configure an email with attachment so that it CANNOT be forwarded to someone else?

why do you want to do this?

Can't think of a way.

No it's not - but you could provide some sort of protection if you were keen enough.

Put your attachment into a web page - then send an email with only a link to the web page. Protect the web page from being copied or printed. Delete the web page after a set time had elapsed (after you are pretty sure it's been read).

Whether this is useful or not depends on what you are trying to acheive.
