Is work email private?

Poll #1386497 Email privacy

Hypothetical: At your workplace, you are on a committee. A controversial work issue comes up that the committee must deal with. You send an email to the others on the committee setting out where you stand on the issue and why. Someone else on the committee forwards the email (yours and others) to everyone in the organization without asking permission first. How do you feel about that?

Unless you asked them to keep the email confidential, any expectation of privacy was lost when you hit send.
