Email & Attachments.

Could the intended addressee publish without fear from the law? I'm guessing not but all knowledgeable opinions are most welcome. :D

That rather depends on the attachment and the circumstances in which it was sent to you.

It (or some form of it) is routinely attached to emails from lawyers.

As Atti says, there are a thousand different circumstances which can apply.

If, for example, the material is content from a child case, you might easily be up for contempt. On the other hand, if he/she is booking a squash court, the consequences might differ.

You must also ask to whom the privilege belongs.
