Notes - prevent copying

Hello

Prevent Copying is a security otpion, so that nobody can print or forward mails.

But when your receive an email which is prevented - you still can forward or print the mail
only when you are in the mail you cannot print or forward is this an error of Notes?

I am not too good in explaining hope you understood.

Regards

Helen

Limitation of preventing that other people in the company cannot print or forward the mails.

See, when any user or yourself sent an email to other people enabling prevent Copying, they can't print, forward this mail.

this is security of Lotus Notes.
Hope you got my point.

Not really cause if you have the incoming mail which has the (prevent copying activated) you still can forward and print it.
So this is an error of Lotus Notes.

from HELP:
To prevent copying or forwarding of a Notes mail message:

You can prevent Notes mail recipients from copying a Notes mail message that you send. This includes copying with the clipboard, forwarding, replying with history, and printing. However, this option is merely a deterrent to copying. Recipients can still use other means to copy the message.
  1.      Create a message and choose Actions - Delivery Options.
  2.      On the Basic tab, select "Prevent copying" and click OK.

I am sorry but you dont understand me.
I know how to create an email and prevent copying.

Let me explain differently:

You have your mailbox open - and you see severeal emails (your mailbox)
I send you an email with prevent copying.
You receive it in the inbox, you dont double cklick the mail (you dont open the mail) you print it or you forward it there its working
but when you open the mail you cannot print and cannot forward it.

Understood?

madheeswarCommented:
forward is not working. But reply is working.Print alson working.

All the above scenario is in ND6 and without opening document.

If I open document, I can reply only.

Looks like a BUG.

This is just a mail feature, it shd not be considered as security option, as it can be easily broken with a simple action formula :

Field $keepprivatefield:=@deletefield;

If you really want to apply security, then encrypt the mail and send

and moreover, I believe you cannot do anythign apart from taking printscreen, Irrespective of whether you are in mail mode or message viewing mode
