yes Cindy, exactly. Even your email messages are copyrighted by you (you can choose to say anybody can use this email without my permission) but in general people are supposed to ask. If you use a person's email in a paper you write like for school, there is even a way to reference the email that you used. Like if you were an expert in the growing of pansy flowers from seeds and I were writing a paper about that and you gave me information, I would have to quote you as you said in your email, and there is a way to list the individual email in the bibliography or works cited page.
