Office 2003 disable forwarding

A co-worker claims there is an additional feature which can be installed from the Office CD which will allow a user to disable the ability of someone forwarding a word document in Outlook.  I've looked all over for such a setting and can't locate anything.

This is what someone wants:
they want to secure the file in a way that prevents people from forwarding it once they received it. She said someone said there was a way to do this in Word., and said that option in Word was not typically installed on people's computers.

This is complete news to me.

I know about password protecting and read-only, but that's it.

I think your co-worker may be misinformed as I don't think this is possible.

Actually it looks like it is something available.  It's called Information Rights Management (IRM)

Anyone ever hear of it?

So do you have a Windows 2003 Server?  That's the only way to implement it apparently.

Great - let us know how it turns out.  This is certainly not a feature that can be set through just Microsoft Office.
