Disappearing or Temp Email

Specs: Windows
The reason I'm posting this under the security
section is because I would like to send
someone a highly confidential email with
certain security measures. A few years ago I
remember reading about email that would "self
destruct" after a certain preset time frame and
could not be forwarded to other people. I have
searched for such a service but cannot find
any. Does anyone know of an Outlook plugin
or a stand alone service where I can send a
temporary, non-forwarding email?

Thanks

Are you asking about sending email that self-destruct - in say 30 minutes - once the recipient open it? For this to work I guess you will have to ask the receipt to download certain application to read it.

Yes that's basically what I'm looking for. I thought the way it
worked was by using an html with an embedded address that
would go away after a set period and would not require the
recipient to need anything special.

AFAIK there is no code in HTML that securely erase email.

You should be mindful of the legal ramification of sending such email.

BTW there are even third party vendors peddling self-destruct email service. If you really want to solicit their service - exercise utmost care. Good luck.

If it's "Highly Confidential" then don't send it in an email...unless you have a classified network.
