Share Article

Just in time for criminal trial, online users can easily identify objectionable content, and more, sent and received by Enron executives.

I tried to find the most outrageous email, but couldn't pick one. I believe anyone interested in the Enron legacy and culture, as well as the Lay and Skilling trial, will want to check out www.EnronEmail.com.

The exact words written in the emails of top Enron Corp. employees, including those of Enron’s Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling, are categorized and available for easy, free, on-line searching and analysis using InBoxer, Inc.’s new sophisticated content analysis tools at http://www.EnronEmail.com.

More than 500,000 emails sent to and from 176 company employees from 2000 to 2002 -- and released by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) -- are available. At http://www.EnronEmail.com, users can find useful material, such as:

  • Business practices. (Look for Tom Delay and fund raising.)
  • Insights into executive life. (Look for Linda Lay about Biochemical Research.)
  • Some really good jokes. (Look for the one about giving a cat a pill.)
  • Truly offensive content. (Search the Objectionable Use column.)

“I can’t believe some of the things Enron employees put in their email messages. Who would ever write about their ‘one night stands’ or the habits of their bosses?” said Roger Matus, InBoxer’s chief executive. “I tried to find the most outrageous email, but couldn't pick one. I believe anyone interested in the Enron legacy and culture, as well as the Lay and Skilling trial, will want to check out http://www.EnronEmail.com.”

Online visitors create a free account at http://www.EnronEmail.com using the InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance, which is currently being tested. They then use the built-in tools to find messages that would have triggered an alert if Enron had been able to use the InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance back then. Alternatively, users may search for words, phrases, senders, recipients and more. The complimentary service is provided by InBoxer, Inc.

In addition to providing search capabilities, InBoxer is sponsoring three contests on the site and will be awarding prizes to the individuals who identify the most outrageous emails in three categories:

  • Contest 1: I’d fire him (or her)
  • Contest 2: Enron’s funniest jokes
  • Contest 3: What were they thinking

Rules of the contest and prizes are posted on the site, which also enables visitors to view and post blogging comments.
