> Example:
> CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: This e-mail transmission and any documents, files, or previous E-mail messages appended or attached to it, may contain information that is confidential or legally privileged. If you are not the intended recipient, or a person responsible for delivering it to the intended recipient, you are hereby notified that you must not read this transmission and that any disclosure, copying, printing, distribution, or use of the information contained or attached to this transmission is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. If you have received this transmission in error, please immediately notify the sender by a reply e-mail message and delete the original transmission, its attachments, and any copies without reading or saving in any manner.

Let's simplify this.  Spammers fill the internet with spam and some attach Confidentiality Notices such as the above.  My take on this is that unless you have signed or agreed to a confidentiality policy in advance, you are not legally bound to honor the notice. It's vapor - and vapor probably intended to keep their tactics private.
