    Is there any way (in either client) to flag a message "Strictly Private And Confidential" ?

    I have Outlook, but it's so full of bugs I don't trust it.

    What do you hope to gain by so flagging your messages?

    It's A Private Message

    To A Doctors surgery. It MUSt be read by the individual concerned and nobody else.

    In outlook I can do it but Office for Mac and particularly Outlook are unreliable.

    Nothing in Apple mail or T/Bird.

    Ideas

    Constructive please.

    I've seen this feature you're talking about in Outlook. It's worse than useless. All it is is a Microsoft-specific header that goes into the email message that alerts the reader that a message is private. It provides no actual security.

    Just typing PRIVATE or CONFIDENTIAL in the subject line gives the same effect. Outlook is the only mail client that you're going to find with this "feature" as it requires that both the sender and recipient be using Outlook for email. Other email clients ignore the header.

    Totally pointless.

    Thanks

    But I knew that:) It's a busy surgery,and I'm having issues with them. I hate to say this, but I may have to do it from a friends Pee-Cee. If an email client for Mac exists that has the Red flag and "Do Not Open" feature, then I'd pay.

    Went through the App store...Nada.

    Ideas?
