I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'bemoan selfless email' is the definition.
'lament' can be an answer for 'bemoan' (synonyms). I'm not sure about the 'selfless email' bit.

'circulated by northern territory' is the wordplay.
'circulated by' becomes 'lame' (I can't justify this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'northern territory' becomes 'nt'.

(Other definitions for lament that I've seen before include "Song expressing grief" , "Sad song" , "Mourn (a person's death)" , "Express disappointment" , "Show of sorrow" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
