AT&T is developing a way for email senders to have their messages “self-destruct” after being sent. According to Forbes.com, AT&T plans to give senders the power to control their messages behavior after being sent. Besides¬†giving the message an expiration date, users can also determine who the message can and cannot be forwarded to. The new system also allows users to delete all possible copies of a message, including all replies and forewards. While the system sounds like a great plan to give users complete control of the messages they send, AT&T admits it’s not a replacement for all email systems. One reason is that for the system to fully function, all recipients would have to have compatible software.
