I'm inclined to agree with you. So is our Data Protection person. She also
pointed out that it's a bit stupid having a disclaimer at the bottom of the
message. If you want to say something to the effect of "Don't read this if
it's not for you", surely you should say it before the recipient has read
the message?

The thing that really annoys me is when you get a 3 line message with a 40
line bilingual (we're in Wales) disclaimer on the bottom!
