Forward a "prevent copying" document

This tip describes how to forward a "prevent copying" document.

This tip describes how to forward or copy a document that has had "prevent copying" selected.

Create a manual agent (act on selected documents) with the following code:

FIELD $KeepPrivate := "0";SELECT @All

Return to your inbox (or other view/folder), select the documents you want to change and run the agent. Now you can copy or forward the document(s). Of course, if you send a "prevent copying" e-mail to a non-Notes account (internet mail) then they can forward or copy the document anyway.

To switch "prevent copying" back on just do:

$KeepPrivate := "1"

Other variables can also be changed, some of them with "simple actions". E.g.:

Modify field 'ReturnReceipt': Set to '0'

You can create your own view of your inbox with ReturnReceipt as one of the columns so you can see if it has a ReturnReceipt before you open it. Then you can decide whether to open it, change the return receipt tag or replicate the mail to your local database and view it from there. This gives you time to do some research before the sender sees you have opened the document. If you change the tag, don't forget to change it back and then reopen the document so that the sender gets the return receipt.

I rarely use the supplied inbox. I use my own view with the following:
- date and time (instead of just the date)
- click on twistie to sort subject (after removing "re:", "fw:" and "rx:" -- which all go into a separate column)
- number of attachments
- alternate white and very pale blue lines.
