Outlook Web Access Lockdown

Is there a way to prevent Outlook Web Access users from being able to download, copy, or in any other fashion acquire, attachments (such as Word, PDF, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. files) when using Outlook Web Access. For example, if a OWA user accesses their email via a home computer...is there a way to "lockdown" OWA so that ALL the user can do is view the email, or attachment, not download or print it out. I'm looking for a way to control this on the server side. Thanks for your help!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Just remove access to the private computer option. Public computers can’t download attachments.

    There are 2 steps to accomplish all that you are trying. To prevent attachments from being viewed or sent through OWA you have to change the registry on the Exchange server. See http://searchexchange.techtarget.com/tip/1,289483,sid43_gci965504,00.html for more information on this. To prevent a user from printing the email, you will have to use some type of rights management application on the server and the client. See http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Rights-Management-Service-Exchange-2003-Part1.html for the how to on this. The public/private option on your forms based log in only controls how long the user can be inactive before there is a forced log-off.
