E-mail disclaimers - Are they useful?

From: James H.
Sent on: Saturday, December 1, 2012 8:37 PM
Hi everyone,

From time to time I am considering e-mail disclaimers but I have never got the chance to understand them properly. Based on what I read so far I see that e-mail disclaimers might be used in the following ways:

1- Bring liability down or at least chance of getting sued
2- Make your e-mail look more business like

It seems that disclaimers are really not legally binding and at the very best might bring the costs a bit lower if a case is referred to courts. So, I have the following questions:

1- Are disclaimers really needed other than for aesthetics and public face?
2- What is a good source for copying such disclaimers? And I am only interested in general ones and not interested to get a lawyer involved to check our needs as I still don't think disclaimers are that important to care about them so much.

Any feedback is much appreciated.
