Great info and thanks!  but what I am looking for is the user being able to select the individuals that get the attachment. In other words User X is sending an email to user A,B,C,D but only wants the attachment in this email to go to user B and D without having to create seperate email messages.

2. or script it
3. or use a 3rd party filtering agent; i.e. antivirus/antispam specialized filter
4. RMS filter

"Restrictions can now be applied in the core transport via Transports Rules. Connector restrictions as such are completely gone (since the concept of internal connectors is pretty much gone) and it's up to transport rules to enforce restrictions in Exchange 2007."

The solutions may work but what I got out of the responses was there isnt anything in Outlook that the user can select to have attachments go to only select people in any particular email being sent. The other info given in the responses was great info just not relative to what I was asking specifically.
