Netiquette IQ definition of The Day - Email Shredder

Today's word may not mean exactly what you think!
Definition from

e-mail shredder

a.k.a. scrubbers, anonymizers
An option (from Omniva Policy Systems) that lets users specify a "detonation time" of anywhere from 30 minutes to years after an e-mail is sent. The e-mail itself remains after the detonation date, but recipients who try to open it get only gobbledygook. The e-mail remains alive but the recipient must have a unique key to read it after the detonation time.
In addition to this blog, I have authored the premiere book on Netiquette, " Netiquette IQ - A Comprehensive Guide to Improve, Enhance and Add Power to Your Email". You can view my profile, reviews of the book and content excerpts at:
