Dis claimer, dat just small print

I sent a request for an estimate to some printers that I haven't used before. It came back promptly and I sent them the job. Only then did I look more closely at the standard small print disclaimer that far too many emails have nowadays:
This e-mail is intended for the named recipient only. If it has come to you in error then something catastrophic has happened. Quick, delete the file and any attachments and lock the doors. In fact, deny everything.

Obviously we don't accept responsibility for the contents of the e-mail, and any opinions written by the author are his alone.

We have tried very hard to make sure this e-mail reaches you in tip-top condition, free of viruses, Trojan horses, Phoenician sheep, Etrurian geese, Assyrian voles and other nasty things too.

No paper was used in the creation of this e-mail, but several billion electrons were diverted from their original destination. Sorry.
If you really need to print this e-mail - please do so, but another species of dolphin will probably become extinct as a result.
I think I'll be sending them more work in the future.
