prevent e-mail message recipients automatically forward a message

You can, in outlook, make a 'form' that prevents the e-mail recipient from
using 'reply' and 'forward' on an e-mail send using that 'form'.

But if there is set a 'rule' to automatic forward the email, then it will be
forwarded regardless what the form says.

Using Outlook as the transmitting and the receiving e-mail program. How do
you defenitly prevent an e-mail to be forwarded - to disgard what ever rules
there may be. In other words; How do you make sure that there is only one
recipient for an email? (of course if the exchange administrator have made
more recipients then its not possible, but if thats not the case).

Even if you block the Forward action, I can send that message by creating a new message and inserting the non-forward message into it, like an attachment.

Maybe you need to back up and explain what it is you're really trying to accomplish.

It's not orward by human interferenceI want to prevent, but computer
generated AUTO forward.

Reason (makes it easier to understand the question):
I am working at an office in China. All emails are, by rules in Outlook,
auto forwarded to an office manager. For a non-Chinese person this is a
violation of the privacy. It's an office policy so it's not for me to change.
However, I would like to be able to send emails that are not auto forwarded.

You'd have to use a Windows Rights Management or some similar content protection scheme.
