As to the second paragraph, it is probably within their right to do that, and maybe one should give them credit for being explicit about it. But it certainly doesn't speak well of the organization.
Again, note that this one is not yet confirmed. But I am currently seeking confirmation on this. That is I only have a report about this disclaimer. I haven't seen it myself, nor received confirmation from Paisner & Co that they do stamp that on all outgoing email. I assume that since their address and telephone numbers are listed on their website, they have no objection to my republishing them here.

Except for the typical silly "information in this email is confidential" bit, the rest actually makes some sort of sense. But it is stuck with the "addressee" problem. I would hardly be surprised if they also put (most) of that on their paper correspondence. What makes this email appendage particularly silly is its length. Though, they should get some credit for pointing out that email can easily be tampared with. I wonder if they use PGP?

I'm still catching my breath. I do think that it is not entirely inappropriate for financial institutions to have some sort of disclaimer or legal statements. But there must be some limit, mustn't there? This one suffers from a number of problems pointed out. Including, as most, the "addressee vs intended recipient" problem, but this one has the clearest case of the contradiction of acting to remove and warning that action is prohibited.
This is as yet unconfirmed.

As with the previous ones, some of this makes sense for a financial institution. And while this reads like verbal diarrhea, it actually contains some of the "opt-outs" I've mentioned (copious use of "Unless otherwise stated"). But it still has that silly confidentiality bit.
