To send email from the Ullevål university hospital in Oslo, the first to 
words of the email needs to be "ikke sensitiv" (Norwegian for "not 
confidential") in order for the email server to allow the email to be sent 
to the outside world. These restrictions do not apply for internal mail.

If you don't include these two words, the email server will bounce it back 
to you, telling you to not send confidential information outside the 
hospital, or to include the magic words, in case that the message in fact 
is not confidential.
