Beware of Email!

Remember the infamous Claire Swire email and Peter Chung email: both private communications that were eventually forwarded to more than 1 million people around the world? Don't laugh. That could be you. According to the WSJ article (subscription may be required), you can now view the emails of Enron employees in this searchable online database, courtesy of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

"The e-mails roughly cover the years 2000 through 2002. At no charge, viewers can troll through the e-mail boxes and calendars of 176 current and former Enron executives and employees, most of them involved in the company's power-trading operations. The names of the e-mails' senders and recipients are still attached.

Sadly, some of the emails are of a personal nature and are now for all the world to see. Once again folks, unless you wouldn't mind having something posted on the Internet (literally), don't put it in an email... or instant message for that matter.
