I'd love to know others opinions on this. I recently sold a website. The new owner has his lawyer involved in the sale. Now I have sold (and bought) many websites over the last 18 years, but I encountered a new issue in this one. The new owner (and probably more specifically his lawyer) have asked me to send the email history in the website business, ie all the emails I have exchanged over the last couple of years (from the domain email of course). I was surprised at this as I've never been asked to send any email history of any site I have ever sold. The lawyers assertion is that there could be important agreements contained in amongst the emails. I have explained any agreements ( and there are very few in legal terms) have been contained amongst other documents I have sent them . I don't want to get too bogged down in the nitty gritty of this, but has anyone who has sold a business, especially a website, ever been asked to hand over their email history pertaining to that business? It's a completely new one to me, and I'm not too happy about this....someone reading all my email history for several years .
