There has been a recent case where comments on email have led to a
successful lawsuit.

In July, Norwich Union Healthcare agreed to pay damages of 450,000 to
rival insurers Western Provident Association after libellous rumours
about WPA's financial position were circulated by e-mail between Norwich
Union staff, suggesting that Western Provident was insolvent and was
being investigated by the Department of Trade and Industry.

The interesting thing about this case was that the email was internal
and never sent to a third party.
