  1. When I receive email, I sometimes want to forward it but I'd like to keep my friend's email address from going with it. Is there some way in IE Tools to control this?

    First; good insight on your part -- protect ALL email addresses is a good policy!

    The easy way is to use BCC instead of the CC list. Each recipient will believe that he/she was the only person receiving the forward.

    If you do this frequently, create a Distribution List and then use that as the BCC entry :)
