IANAL, but to me email looks like a different case than copied webpages. 
An email is sent to a recipient. The recipient can store the email but 
not redistribute without license. Emails are also copyright protected.

Did you already check the fair use criteria for your project and argued 
your case how you think they could mitigate copyright infringment claims 
of your project to Lawrence?
