According to CNet, a UK based security company has discovered a way to send sensitive emails, that delete themselves after a certain amount of time.  If, like me, you have a boss who's Exchange mailbox file is over 3 Gigs, I can think of another use for it too!

"Staellium UK said its StealthText service will allow business executives dealing with sensitive

information to send texts that will delete themselves from the recipient's mobile phone soon after

the person has read them.


Once a message has been sent, the recipient receives a text notification showing the sender's name

and providing a link to the message.


Once opened, the message will disappear after about 40 seconds. Staellium said it has had interest

from financial services companies, celebrity agents and the U.K.'s Ministry of Defense. "
