Prevent Exchange public folder from drag and drop for security reasons

We are trying to prevent employee from dragging and dropping into public folders because it created security problem when a personal email was wrongly dropped into a public folder.

Because the users can only post and NOT allowed to delete it was difficult for the poster to retrace her step.

Question: What will be the best way to still allow people to POST and using the standard approach and DISALLOW drag and drop? When you drag and drop, one can easily drop into a wrong public space.

Will appreciate your help, thanks.

I'm thinking that drag and drop is part of the GUI, not part of Exchange or Outlook.  The only way I know of  that you can keep someone from dragging something is not allowing them access.  Tweakui or some other registry hack may disallow D&D from the desktop but I don't know of any sure way to do that.

Resolved. I created a user account with the only right to write to the public folder and use that user as the also the moderator. Also every email going to the public folder is redirected to the new user account  i.e. account that was created above. And a rule was created to now forward every email to the public folder. This resolves the issue.
