Rights management is based on the concept that you can assign a security policy to a particular document, which includes e-mails and attachements. This policy can restrict how the document can be used, including settings to allow/disallow viewing the document, copying, printing, saving and forwarding.
In addition to internal users who might be using Office 2003, the rights management policies can be enforced with external users. A plug-in has been provided for Internet Explorer so that you can view rights-managed documents.
