I do research on micro-interaction and am advising an undergraduate 
senior thesis on the topic of email communication -- specifically, on 
the opportunities and challenges that define email as partially distinct 
from face-to-face communication. She's having some predictable trouble 
getting undergrads to share their email, and I'm looking around for 
other email corpora that she might use. She's especially interested in 
comparing formal-organizational with informal messages. Any leads are 
appreciated; please be sure to send or cc responses to me directly as 
I'm not a subscriber to this listserve.
