Balls.  If I send someone a written work by myself, I retain the copyright
therein; it's something inherent to our copyright legislation.  I don't lose
the copyright to something I've written simply because I send it to someone.
 If that were the case, then a lot of authors would never send their
manuscripts on spec to publishers :)

Also, emails aren't letters :)
