Solo Tip Tuesday: Disabling Forwarding and Reply to All in Outlook

by Reba Nance on July 31, 2012

Microsoft Outlook 2003 and 2007 both allow you to set up an email form that will prevent recipients from forwarding your emails to anyone else as long as the sender and recipient both use Outlook.  Although there are ways of getting around this—the recipient could cut and paste the content of your email into another email and then forward that—this isn’t as easy as simply hitting “Forward.” Plus, the cut-and-pasted email would not have your “header” information on it, such as your name, your email address, the time and date you sent the original message, etc.

The two links below contain detailed instructions to set this up.  Even easier, click on the “Show Me” link and you will see a step-by-step video that walks you through this.  Note that the instructions show you how to prevent “Forwarding” and also prevent “Reply to All.”  You can set up a form that does both, or simply create one to prevent “Forwarding.”  The instructions are very straight-forward.

You can see this tip and others, on topics ranging from Outlook and Word help to App reviews and online tools, all here.
