I want to send a confidential document in an email which can be opened only once and after that it should self destruct in the recepient's inbox. He should not be able to save, print screen or photograph it. It should be allowed to be printed only once [or visualise it once only as a second option for sender]. The recepient should not be able to scan and print the only copy or save it as a scanned image. In short only one print copy of the document should exist and it should not be allowed to save or print by any concievable means. I know I am asking for too much. Is it possible???

It's not possible to enforce such restrictions in an email message.

Hand carry the document to the recipient. Hold it in front of him while he reads it and then take it with you when you leave.

Let's take a look at some of your requirements...

...opened only once and after that it should self destruct in the recepient's inbox. He should not be able to save, print screen ....

In order for that to happen, the email would have to contain a program that would essentially prevent normal user activity as well as delete the email. That sounds very much like a virus which I would hope any decent virus protection would detect and destroy.

...or photograph it.

Would that include using a camera to take a picture of the screen? Good luck trying to prevent that.

It should be allowed to be printed only once [or visualise it once only as a second option for sender]. The recepient should not be able to scan and print the only copy or save it as a scanned image

I guess that part is possible. You could go to the recipient's house and make sure he has one-use-only paper in his printer. Since you are allowing him to print it, you had better make sure that he prints it on paper that prevents the image from being scanned of copied.

So, to recap...

Virus protection software prevents your first requirement from being fulfilled, handheld cameras prevent your second requirement from being fulfilled, and your inability to control what kind of paper the document is printed on prevents your last requirement for be fulfilled.

Maybe you should call the recipient and read the document to him.
