Hello all
I use edumail, and the "stamp" or disclaimer is what they put on it - nothing to do with me.
Rather strange actually, because if someone receives an email in error, how does one know it was an error, and as if you would bother contacting the dept. to let them know (contacting the dept is certainly not one of my favourite time wasting activities!!) Whoever reads the disclaimer anyway?
NB - Please see below for disclaimer!

Subject: [Offtopic] Disclaimers and implications

Hi folks,
        At a recent meeting we had a teacher ask who "stamps" an outgoing message as being legally without liability and with a disclaimer that is "watertight". He also asked the same question regarding each web page accessible from outside of the school hosted on a school server.
         Have any schools sought legal or other departmental advice and does such advice exist with guidelines ? I have looked at some signatures of messages on the lists that have disclaimers and wondered if it was just a concensus for that school or through some formal legal foundation .
         I would love to hear from anyone with any experience or background on all aspects of this "off topic " issue on the "offtopic" mailing list !
