IMHO mail should have blanket protection regardless of the means
by which it is sent.

I would be curious to know how and or what the laws are
pertaining to a telegram, and or cable.

Certainly similar protection exists for these forms of
transmittal as that of snail-mail, there might be language
therein that could pose a pro-argument" for e-mail.

In any event most aren't aware of the activities with the man
behind the curtain...
