E-Mailers of the World Beware...You might land in the Hot Seat

In their Personal Finance Daily, MarketWatch (requires registration) reminds us of how E-Mails can come back to hound us.

Here is a quick and to the point excerpt:

"Email accounts, especially those provided by your employer, need to come with a modified set of Miranda warnings anytime you open up your Send program: "You have the right to remain silent. Any email you send can and will be used against you, by your boss and in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney, not that it will do you any good. We've seen what you've been sending." If you lick and stamp an envelope with any sort of private note inside and drop it in a mailbox, it would be a federal crime for somebody to snatch it, open it and read it. But if you send a few notions through your work email server, all you are doing is delivering juicy material right into the hands of your employer."

What are your thoughts on this?

Have you ever landed in hot water because of a misguided or too honest e-mail?

They decided to keep it sane and manageable by keeping their offerings down to one product, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies made fresh to order one batch at a time. They are sold for $20 a dozen and delivered to your home or business...
