I don't believe that you can do that, consider protecting your attachment from editing, printing... depends of attachments file format.

I would agree with Kechka above... once you send it out, it's theirs.
Also, in agreeing with him, you could stop them from editing it by making it into a PDF and adding a password - not impermeable, but good enough for most users.
