In the boiler-plate, you'll see that there's wording that contemplates
the message having been accidentally sent to its recipients, in this
case a public list.  Since the message also claims to be "private and
confidential", the first guess would have to be that indeed it's not
supposed to be public.  Who would send a message clearly marked as
private and confidential to a public list?

Since there's no way for us to know whether the message was really
supposed to be public and has the boiler-plate by accident, or the
boiler-plate is correct and the message has been made public
accidentally, the safest course is to follow the instructions in the
message and immediately delete all copies of it.
