Using Outlook 98 with Exchange Server.
It may seem like a nifty feature that users can open incoming mail, modify it, and save it. I've even used the ability to edit the subject line so it's easier to find things.
But recently, I opened a Word attachment and started editing it, intending to save a copy. By mistake, I just saved it on exiting and discovered (to my dismay) that I had written over the original attachment.
And it creates a major question about using e-mail as an audit trail.
So, first, is there any way to prevent OL98 users from editing messages that they have received or sent? What about editing attachments?
And, second, is there any way to tell that a message has been edited? What about attachments?
