I don't know, do they have a moral obligation to tell you?

In case you meant the first word to be "Could", my answer is that "from now onwards" takes longer to say. I personally think "from now on" is the better of the two: it's certainly more natural and idiomatic.

One extra syllable, mainly. If you really want to
be one of the movers and shakers, you'll go
with "on a going-forward basis".

I just wonder why I never heard someone said "from now onwards" instead of "from now on, but there are a lot of newswriters who write "from now onwards" in their reports.

Favored by corporate types.
[nq:1]for example, 1. please don't send me any e-mail from now on. 2. please don't send me any e-mail from now onwards which one is correct?[/nq]
They're both correct, I guess, but the first
is more natural and idiomatic.
"Please don't send me any more e-mail" might
be even better.

Neither. Correct: "Please don't send me any more email."

All three are correct, although Adrian's version is more idiomatic. Of course, none of them will actually have any effect. Even when spam doesn't have a false sender address, nobody reads email replies to it.
