Whats wrong on having a disclaimer text below mails?
Disclaimer texts may not be neat on mails. But having a disclaimer text in
place could save the company from some legal trouble in the future. Most
companies (including ours) have banned free web based email sites such as
yahoo and hotmail.
My company requires that all emails have a lengthy singnature at the end.
Disclaimer texts may be an inconvenience at the user end, but it is good for
a company. Some time in the future we too may have disclaimer texts.
Whether we like it or not, we are going to have more and more companies having
a disclaimer para in their mails in the future. Better we learn to live with
it from now.

use your private e-mail address for discussion forums.

to the mailing list with their firm's disclaimer. This should be
