Email disclaimers are statements that are either prepended or appended to e-mails. These statements are usually of a legal character. Email disclaimers inform recipients of corporate legal information and policies. For all practical purposes, email disclaimers are used to reduce liability and caution recipients about misusing the information within the message. Email disclaimers can be tacked onto the bottom of all outgoing messages automatically when sent through a particular server.
