Introduction to Using IRM for e-Mail Messages
This paper describes how to restrict permission to e-mail messages in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 by using Information Rights Management (IRM), which is available in the 2007 Microsoft Office system. Information Rights Management (IRM) allows individuals to specify access permissions to e-mail messages. By using IRM, it helps prevent sensitive information from being printed, forwarded, or copied by unauthorized people. After permission for a message has been restricted by using IRM, the access and usage restrictions are enforced no matter where the information is, because the permissions to access an e-mail message are stored in the message file itself.
