Re: Should Emails Have An Expiration Date

I think this entire thread should be "expired".

It's already specified in RFC's 1327 and 2076 and no MUA supports it
because it's a dumb idea.
I can't believe 3 days later it's still being talked about like it's a
serious thing.

Regarding the side discussion on copyrights: If anybody went into a
court room and argued to the judge that they were compelled to delete an
email by copyright law due to an "expires:" header they would be laughed
out of the room.
