All I can say is wow. This is a prime example why Seth Godin is the man. He wrote a great piece on permission emailing with loads of fantastic rules for the sender.
My rules are simple if your email is a touching story, selling something, or is some joke i delete them (Dan Buck is the only exception because the jokes he sends are funny, as opposed to the unfunny pictures of cats sleeping on TV’s or otters holding hands.)

And you won’t find out that George Bush led a 15 year old boy to the Lord at a fund raising dinner. Or that if you have a drink in a bar with a stranger you could lose a kidney.
