Microsoft's new IRM, and how to deal with it in Outlook
Microsoft's new Information Rights Management software in Office 2003 will only let approved users open Outlook email messages which are "IRMed" and allow users to set an expiry date after which their messages will die.
Effectively, this is congruous to having an "auto shredder" service for email. Rather handy for business use, but if you read the fine print you find out that:
For another, even for people who DO use Outlook but do not have IRM capabiilties installed (given that they are not free to begin with) it may be a problem to receive "IRMed" email. There is a fix though, if you use Office download the update from Office Update website.
