If your corporate policy insists on huge disclaimers regarding confidential
information on e-mails sent to public maling lists, it's busticated, pure and
simple.

And unless somebody can cite actual statute or case law where such a blanket
disclaimer made an *actual difference*, the policy *in general* is busticated.
Yes, I know that it *does* matter for *some specific* content.  But the only
case law I know of was one judge who (in an unfortunately non-precidential way)
said the fact that a company felt the need to put a blanket disclaimer on all
the e-mail was doing itself a dis-favor, because it tended to indicate that the
company had no clue or control over what content was in fact privileged or
confidential.
