Not to question the technical smarts of the folks over here in Wake county, but are they really sure all those deleted email messages were really deleted? I never worked at a place where employees were able to delete files on a server. Do state employees have that right?

If state employees are not supposed to delete email, why would you let them do that? It's easy to let people "delete" email off their local PC while retaining it on a server.

On the other hand, why would a governor say it's OK for employees to delete mail?

Good questions.
Also, if the sender can't prevent a "sent mail" copy from being generated, why wait until the end of the day? Delete it ASAP: reduce the chances of forgetting and of having the copy end up on a backup somewhere.
