Our expert says:
One has to be sure, when doing such things, even with the best of motives, that you are sure you really want to do it and can face the likely consequences ( you could have spoken to him and said you'd feel obliged to speak to his gf unless he stopped whatever it was he was doing ). I doubt that he can actually trace an email, or that he could succeed with any legal action --- he's probably just making a big noise to impress her and to try and convince her that the rumours are untrue. And as D@mn says, to succeed in a defamation action, he has to show that the rumour was untrue, and that you knew it was untrue, and that it caused him significant damage and if he convinces her that it's untrue and she doesnt leave him, there was no actionable damage ), and that it wasn;t 8in the public interest.
