IANAL, but: It's not only that we all hate them; also they are questionable in 
a legal point of view. They are based on:

- "It is intended for the addressee(s) only. If you have received this 
communication in error please notify the sender"

Yeah; I got the message, so I'm the addresee. No point here. And my telephatic 
powers are down now, so I can't know if it's been an error or not. 

- " delete this message from your system without copying or disseminating it 
or placing any reliance upon its contents"

Well, you sent it to me, so it's mine now. Sending a message to me doesn't 
give you the power to tell me what should I do; otherwise, I could say 
something like "send me all the files in your hard disk so I can verify you 
save no copy of this messages" or even "send me 1000$".

- Confidentially

Under spanish law, I have to SIGN a contract BEFORE I access to the 
confidential content. No contract, no confidentially. They can not show me 
some content and, later, tell me it was confidential.

Some interesting articles about this:
- in spanish:

- in english:

And yes, I'm really tired of this messages...
