Journal farnz's Journal: UK ISP reacts to automated e-mail legalese footers

My ISP, Andrews & Arnold (a great, geek-friendly UK ISP) have recently come up with a rather telling response to all the junk legalese footers you see on e-mail from big businesses. Their mailserver points you to a terms and conditions page whenever you connect to it; they believe that these terms are as enforceable as those in the footers.

It'd be great to see if a company that automatically adds a legalese footer to outgoing e-mail had enough courage to try and enforce them against AAISP; I'd love to see a judge trying to understand just what was going on in an SMTP exchange.
