If you sent a letter to him then there is no law which would prevent him from releasing it to others and giving them permission to post it as they see fit.
There are no protected privacy interests created by an email between individuals.
It is a different matter if they are using materials that weren't sent to someone else, for instance if they hacked into your emails, but by sending the email to him you waived any privacy issue that may have existed.
Even if you had put something on there stating that it is private and not to be sent to anyone else, unless he specifically agreed to it then it would still be unlikely to be enforceable.
Then I looked like an asshole trying to prevent theft and my friends and I ended up like ignorantrs
anyway, we leave it up to God...
I'm not sure what to say about that. I wouldn't think trying to prevent theft would make you look bad.
Thank you for the advises...
You're very welcome. Anything else I can answer for you before I exit to assist others?
