    Default Privacy Issues with Emails

    Are there any legal issues associated with revealing the content of emails to a third party?


    Moderator: I don't know the proper cubbyhole for this topic.

    Depends.

    Is it confidential company information in the e-mail, or some yahoo calling you names?

    Sharing confidential company information is obviously a bad plan. Disclosing the contents of personal e-mail, while potentially jerky, won't typically land you in court.

    It is about some yahoo complaining about a coworker in an (stated to me) attempt to get her fired.

    If you asked most people what program they use the most each day, it's probably their e-mail client. For most Windows users, this means Outlook or Outlook Express (OE). This is problematic, of course, since out of the box both programs are dreadfully insecure. Fortunately, there are things that users can do to protect their privacy when using Microsoft's e-mail clients. Please note that I'm only going to cover aspects of these programs that directly pertain to privacy; going over the security aspects of Outlook and OE would require an article by itself.
