I note that, rather than saving space, all emails which I receive extend to at least two pages. They all have standard material on them declining responsibility for this, that and the other, telling me that liability for everything is excepted, and if the recipient is someone other than the intended person they should destroy the email in question. I do not notice any of this mumbo jumbo on letters, yet the only difference between an email and a letter (apart from a custom that references are not quoted on emails) is that they are serving the same function, one electronically and the other by mail. Can I ask why the mumbo jumbo is not attached to all letters? As Christmas approaches, we put a macro on our letters advising of dates when our office will be closed. Apart from the initial typing of the message, this involves nothing more than pressing one button. Surely there is no real difference between letters and email: if the mumbo jumbo is so essential on emails, why not on letters too?
