Hi,

Is it possible to restrict download email attachment in mobile email is configured, however once user forward the email to their own personal email account, they will be able to open the attachment, anyway to control this?
You can setup a ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy and set the "AttachmentsEnabled" parameter to false,to prevent all users from downloading attachments via mobile phones.
While,in some posts administrators also find that iphones don't follow this policy and users can still download the attachments.

If you want to enable the owner to download the attachment only,sorry I don't have ideas of how to do it.

If you want to restrict user from sending email to themselves,I suppose configuring "Message Delivery Restrictions" on their mailboxes via EAC might help.

You can add their mailboxes to the reject list and there will be a warning like "You don't have permission to send to ..." when the user tries to send emails to himself.

While,in this case forwarded emails would also be rejected,so I don't have ideas of how to let them forward messages to their mailboxes.

In addtion,I'm not sure if it can be achived via GPO.
However,it has more to do with active directory.
