Uneditable Email

Is there another way, other then PDF, to send an email and make it uneditable to recipient?  We are going to try Rights mgmt, but not sure if that is the soluetion or the best solution...I see it can be done for signatures, but can body of email be secured this way ?
Thanks!

Once the email is in the recipient's hands, he can edit it. PDFs are editable.

What are you trying to accomplish? (i.e. What is the end goal of this?) It's likely we can help you get the result you want with alternate means.

It is possible to digitally sign emails in such a way that if they are modified, it will be clear that modification has occurred. Is this good enough?

We need to write emails and forward exsisting emails to the customer.. If they respond or forward, we just want to make sure the original message stays the same.  Some people eidt parts and say it was how it was sent.  I know we have the original sent mail, just trying to make it as painless as possible for upper management here,  That make sense?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

It's a bit rubbish, but you could type the message into a watermarked image and embed it in the body of the email, won't work for non HTML mail clients but it's an option.

Again, pdfs, images, watermarks, are all editable. You have the sent items folder in your box, so if you digitally sign them if it comes down to it, you can prove that yours was not tampered with and theirs was. Just make sure no one is clearing their 'sent items' folder and that should be enough.
