The Times (Interface, p10) covers a report from solicitors Davies Arnold Cooper which has suggested a code of practice for internal e-mail systems so that companies avoid ending up in court or at industrial tribunals.

It recommends that firms make employees aware of a 'five-point plan' that reminds them that e-mail messages are susceptible to libel laws. Another warning reported by The Times is that any form of harassment by e-mail can lead to disciplinary action.
