A whitepaper presenting an analysis of Enron email. Describes many
examples of personal email sent using a company email address,
including one night stands, sexist jokes, racial stereotypes, and more.
The whitepaper is by a company that sells software to automatically
detect policy violations in corporate email -- a classic machine
learning classification problem. Based on the data they present, it
looks like you could be credible in this field just by taking the
Support Vector Machine classifier from the WEKA toolkit and applying
it to a corporate email database (after training, of course).
