  • Gmail’s new Confidential Mode lets you decide how long an email exists before it deletes itself from a recipient’s inbox.
    Confidential mode prevents people from copy/pasting and forwarding emails, but they can still take screenshots. On Win10 it Logo+shift+S to activate Snipet.
  • With Microsoft you can retrieve a message that has been sent within a very short time. but they don't self-destruct.

    Cearly the folks you are dealing with are attempting to avoid accountability. This is not governm't in the sunshine. Show up at the meeting of those greater than Cheif Building Inspector and hold those bosses accountable. You know which way s**& rolls.

We have a few govt agencies here where integrity is a foriegn concept too.

Try documenting each email from them by forwarding to a witness or to another account of yours.

We find this method to be essential with some govt workers, along with documenting each conversation with an email.

I've never heard of such a thing... but if you want a record, you could simply take a screen shot of each email, and store them in a folder marked with the appropriate title.

Never heard of this. Just a wee bit of a Mission Impossible feel.

I would forward to another email or print out so you have a record.

That's working with the village/county or state. I do not know of self-destruct emails but you should be able to save all received or sent emails on your own computer.

I know that you can retract them in Gmail, there are receipts in Outlook saying whether they looked at it or not (stops lying).
