Confidentiality of e-mail Footnotes on E-mails In recent years numerous requests and warnings have been included at the foot of e-mails such as "Please let us know if you are not the intended receiver of this e-mail" or "CONFIDENTIAL – this is privileged correspondence – please destroy if you are not the individual for whom it is intended," etc. The latest in what is fast becoming an avalanche of warnings is the following caution appearing at the bottom of an e-mail received from a North Carolina governmental agency: All email correspondence to and from this address is subject to the North Carolina Public Records Law, which may result in monitoring and disclosure to third parties, including law enforcement.

In this instance, the Circuit Court held that e-mails between a government attorney and Erie County officials were protected by attorney-client privilege.
