Kohl's may indeed have some rights regarding *their* messages. However,
their disclaimer (hopefully inadvertently) talks about "any" message, not
just "any Kohl's message"....
I've seen stupider disclaimers, but this one is right up there..
Of course, if I were an opposing attorney, this sticking of "may contain
confidential information" on stuff posted to worldwide public mailing lists
could be a gold mine - obviously the company has *not a clue* what mail actually
has such info in it. If obviously public mail has a broken inapplicable
disclaimer on it, maybe that other piece of mail I want to subpoena that has
the same exact disclaimer on it isn't in fact privileged either....
