Now that you've brought the subject up, and this ties it completely into
technical writing, isn't the placement of the disclaimer in the wrong
spot for the content?

>> If you are not the intended recipient, please do not read...

Since the disclaimer is at the END of the email, I would probably have
read everything else by the time I got to this particular instruction.

Egads! This could inspire the lawyerly-types to want to put the
disclaimers at the BEGINNING of each message!
