Dear List,

I know we have a "World Police" but luckily we have no World laws, how
about some of you stick to things your supposed to be able to do,
security, coding whatever and leave law to those that practise it ?

I have yet to see a lawyer good at sec, it depends on
- legislation the company resides in
- the contract
- the form of the message

In luxembourg for instance mails labeled as PRIVATE or CONFIDENTIAL
are not allowed to be viewed by the company, ALSO as email. Write it
in the subject line.

To risk breaking my keeping off legal grounds (note: IANAL)

With your logic, someone could bring in their home computer, hook it into the 
network, upload their private files to the server and name a 
directory "CONFIDENTIAL" and shove their personal home files in it and nobody 
is allowed to see what's in it to determine if it's supposed to be there or 
not because it's named "CONFIDENTIAL", thus the person gets free space on the 
COMPANY server to do whatever they please, even after they leave the company.

To be brutally honest, Those marked "CONFIDENTIAL" emails stick about as much 
as those lines some corperations make their staff have at the bottom of 
emails that say essentially "If you received this email in error, delete it 
immediately as it is confidential. It is illegal for you to have this email 
if it isn't reguarding you".

Is it me or are too many people expecting "security by good will" nowadays?
