"can't do much about it except find a new job"? You can talk to the
people you work for and explain to them that the disclaimer is stupid
at best, and breaks your e-mail(*) at worst, and get the policy
improved. This e-mail disclaimer is really no skin off of my back, but
it reflects poorly on the state of Vermont.


* Some mail servers will actually scan all incoming mail for
disclaimers and refuse to accept it if one exists. does
this, for instance, as their public mail archives directly violate
most of the headers you see.
