Meta tag won't help you - by that stage it's already in the cache.

Set appropriate HTTP headers instead.

Cache-Control: no-cache

I've seen some email viruses like:


sending virus email "From" an email address found only on
one of my web pages.

I guess the virus finds our web pages in the Temporary
Internet Cache on the client PC.  Our server checks out clean.

Is there a META tag I can insert into web pages to
prevent their being saved in the Temporary Internet Cache
to avoid becoming a victim of this virus in the future?
