Email circular exposes sensitive board minutes

Having just read Simon's comments on securing email, I can't resist mentioning a recent report in the UK press about a company that accidentally exposed its board's thinking on how to cope with the current economic downturn.

According to the Daily Telegraph, an up-market estate agency accidentally included its board minutes in an internal email. Employees got to read about cost cutting proposals and a "final solution" that might be called for if things get really bad in the housing market. Attempts to recall the email were doomed, as some employees had already forwarded it beyond the company network.
