Every once in a while, I reply back and remind the person with the disclaimer
that just hitting delete doesn't *actually* get rid of the message, and ask if
their organization is willing to reimburse us for the costs of *securely*
erasing the offending message off our inbound mail gateway, the AV/spam
scanners, the central mail routing hub, the mailbox store, and the backups of
all of those systems. (And let me tell you - dissapearing a specific piece of
data off an NSR Legato backup without losing all the other data on the backup
is *really* hard. Trust me on this one. ;)

For some reason, they almost never reply in the affirmative. ;)
