In my experience this is not uncommon. It could be as trivial as a company using domains company.com, company.ca and company.de where email addresses might or might not be aliases between .com, .ca and .de. robert.smith at company.com might or might not be the same person as robert.smith at company.ca.

So this is a webserver that serves the exact same for any request for the site
at http://for.com/ and the site at http://bar.com/ and this is not an explicit
decision by the admin but a consequence of limitations of the setup? Sounds
esoteric enough to ignore to me.
My 2 cents,
I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
