YA stupid email disclaimer

From TIAA-CREF:

This message, including any attachments, contains confidential information intended for a specific individual and purpose, and is protected by law. If you are not the intended recipient, please contact the sender immediately by reply e-mail and destroy all copies. You are hereby notified that any disclosure, copying, or distribution of this message, or the taking of any action based on it, is strictly prohibited.

  • This was sent from the address “DoNotReply@tiaa-cref.org”. So how can you “contact the sender immediately by reply e-mail”?
  • Taking action based on the content of the message is “prohibited.” Does that include contacting the sender?

It would be nice if TIAA-CREF would stop futzing with lawyerese and spend their my money making their web site less abominable.
