Every Email Leaves a Permanent Record


The informal character of email makes it feel a lot like some casual conversation. You should be careful what you say in email, however.

Every Email Leaves a Permanent Record

Unlike harmless chat,

  • email leaves a permanent record, and
  • what you said then may be used against you now.

There's no need for paranoia, but it's certainly a good idea to think about potential consequences before sending a message.
