    Hey Dana, I noticed you are avoiding ARC's specific question asked twice now...why?

    I work in the IT field and part of my job is to respond to computer crashes. I have been doing it for a very long time and with the exception of hurricane or fire damaged computers I have never had a problem retrieving emails.

    The IRS did not have the server capacity to archive every single e-mail that every employ sends. Their retention policy was that only 6,000 e-mails per e-mail account would be stored on the server. If an employee believes that an e-mail is important, but may be lost due to that retention constraint, then it is plausible that they would store that e-mail in a file on their hard drive. This is not unusual at all. I do it myself and, in fact, I must do it to retain communications for longer than 15 months so that our line of business remains in compliance with the firm's risk and control policies. But, any IT specialist who tells you that they can always recover every file from a corrupted hard drive is not telling the truth.

    hahahaha.

    so employees decide for themselves which emails should be saved.

    what could go wrong?

    Thanks, OF. That's kind of what I thought.

    In accordance with risk and control policies in the private sector, absolutely, and it is reasonable to believe that employees in the public sector exercise similar judgement.

    Since when aren't emails stored on hard drives? In any case, the IRS, who demands that we keep records for a minimum of seven years, and can even require proof long before THAT, has an obligation to keep every single email. That, in my opinion, is a piss-poor excuse. Six thousand emails?? That's merely 28 emails a day for a year. I don't even believe it.
