Equally annoying are systems that attach a disclaimer to the mail, not
matter how stupid it is (My favorite is "this mail may contain confidential
or priviledged  information" - sure makes *ME* get warm and fuzzy thinking
about people doing that without PGP or something).

(Yes, it has operational impact - ever gotten a trouble report via e-mail and
the disclaimer says you're not allowed to forward it to the engineer who
can actually fix the problem? ;)
