Have you ever read that disclaimer fully? It makes the mail to be a 
confidential property of the company and they send such mail to a public 
mailing list of an Open Source project? The disclaimer is not just 
irritating but much unethical and legally incorrect. The disclaimers 
mean that the mails, thereby the mail account, should be used for 
confidential and official communication purposes only. Generally, in any 
of the other public mailing list I know of, including a lot of open 
source project's mailing lists, such a mail will result in the sender 
getting unsubscribed from the list and even banned. The list is open, 
but for people who follow the ethics.

The original mail was sent as a reminder to the list members, and those 
who wish to join the list, that using such official mail account for 
this list is BAD and is not welcomed.
