OK, somewhat off topic, but it appears that my employer is now adding a bit of text to the tail end of outgoing messages.

Anyone had any luck getting their hands on this text to edit it?

I especially love the paradox here: "...you are not permitted to use or disclose any information contained in the email" and "...we request you notify the sender..."

Ummm - wouldn't telling the sender be a "use" of the information in the email (information about who the message came from and that the message contained a disclaimer). Doh!


The below text was added by my employer and does not necessarily reflect my thoughts and opinions:

This email and any attachments may be confidential and/or subject to copyright or other intellectual property right protection. If you are not the intended recipient of the email, you are not permitted to use or disclose any information contained in the email or any attachments and we request you notify the sender and delete both the email and any attachments. Thank you.
