Hi again Caspar,
I don't think it is necessary for you to dig through any emails you may have sent us to

that we retained any that you may have sent.
However, it would be useful to know your opinion on this matter. In
particular, we would like to know whether you consider any emails that you
sent to us as confidential.
Sorry to bother you with this,
