The article claims that nowadays an executive's career or a multibillion-dollar judgment can turn on a single e-mail. An e-mail scent by an American Home Products executive who complained about spending his years signing checks to people who are a little afraid of some lung problem was cited as an example. E-mails also caused the expulsion of Harry Stonecipher, who was brought back to clean up Boeing's business scandals and was instead snared in his own uproar.
