How to: Create an email message with restricted permissions in Outlook for Mac


On the "Home" tab, click New Email. Click the "Options" tab. Click Permissions and select the type of restriction you want.


NOTE: When creating a new email message, you can specify permissions using the Information Rights Management (IRM). IRM allows you set restrictions on email messages, documents, workbooks and presentations. For example, you can restrict the email from being forwarded. IRM needs to be enabled on your Exchange Server for this functionality to work.

1) Open Microsoft Outlook for Mac.

2) Click Mail in the bottom left-hand corner of the Outlook window.
