I think that what you are describing is only a symptom of a more serious problem, that your boss tries to micro-manage your development team (is there a team, or is it just you?).

comment Data persistence for transactional customer emails
Why not just use something like MSMQ (perhaps wrapped nicely using something like Rebus of NServiceBus) to send a message containing contents for the email to be sent from the application server to the emailer service. Since MSMQ supports enlisting into the DTC, you can update the data in the database, and send the message to the email service, in a single transaction.

"In the United States, copyright is attached as soon as the work is created". That is not specific for US, as almost all countries agreed on the Berne convention. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…
