Nothing in email is confidential – someone please send a note to Yahoo!

There’s a great post by Kara Swisher at WSJ/All Things D with the complete email sent out to Yahoo!’s today. the best part is the header of the email, “Update on President Organization — CONFIDENTIAL and PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD.”

And so it goes. If you don’t want something to be posted all over the place, don’t send it out on email (especially if your company is the one that everyone used to use to go around corporate email programs).

Want to read the whole thing, here it is.

  1. i actually don’t think yahoo is this stupid. having worked with the comms team internally, they are razor sharp. chances are the “leak” was part of their strategy. and you know what? it worked. allthingsd covered it – probably the coverage they wanted.
