Danish term or phrase: den onde mail
The context is sales/marketing. It seems to be referring (in some instances) to a letter sent to a customer etc. re. a problem/request and proposed solution, though the exact context is a little unclear. Grateful for any help. Many thanks.

agree  Christine Andersen: good suggestion - it covers 'a multitude of sins' :-) - but is not entirely meaningless

agree  Mads Grøftehauge: Yes, as the 'evil' e-mail might be so either because it is brutal news to the recipient or because it is a pain to compose for the sender. Come to think of it, maybe 'brutal' could work...
