The real lesson...

....which I'm pretty sure everybody here is already aware of is:

Never put anything in an unencrypted email which you wouldn't be happy to write on a postcard and send through the post in plain sight of the postmen, sorting office workers, that nice young lady who works in the post room at work, the trecent school leaver trainee who actually drops stuff at your desk, and all your colleagues who might casually glance at your in-tray as they walk past your desk.

Because that's pretty much what you're doing if you send an email without end-to-end encryption...
