Random I know but who if anyone "owns" an email?

For example, I send an email to someone, they reply and a conversation begins, I then decide to post these emails online. Am I breaking any laws?


Once these e/mails are sent  youre then the owner be carefull what you do with them

Probably no one owns emails, however the content will be protected by copyright and possibly also assertions of confidentiality either in the body of the text or a presumption of confidentiality based on the nature of the material or side agreement between sender and recipient(s) that the material will be be kept confidential. I suppose there will also be cases where court orders prevent public disclosure of some information.
