I've recently bought a domain name which is written differently than an already existing domain name. That already existing domain is owned by a company.
I've set up a wildcard redirect for all emails addressed at my domain. However I started to receive emails that seem to be sent in error, and were meant for the other domain name.
I first thought people simply mistyped the domain name and thus the emails landed at my domain. But judging by the amount of mails I receive, and tho whom they are addressed to ([email protected]) and also the content of said mails (hotel booking confimations, plans, even bank statements!) I am pretty sure that the domain was previously owned by that very company.
Now I'm planing to contact said company and tell them that I happen to receive emails that were meant for them. My question is, do I have to fear any legal consequences if I do so? I will of course delete all the mails and I haven't forwarded them or so. But I've still received them and It's been quite a while since I received the first one.
For the record: None of the mails contained a clause that stated, that the content of the mail is confidential.
Another question: Are they allowed to demand a transfer of the domain back to them, even if I legally own it now?
