The overall issue isn't just the public right to know versus privacy rights. It is that people assume that email traffic vanishes.

In the corporate world, "private emails" can be disclosed just because the recipient is under investigation for something unrelated. Look at the Enron emails that are widely published. You can learn about people's private lives, relationships, and more -- even if they had nothing to do with the Enron scandal.
