Yes it is.  Now, if we can just get a law that when I have pulled the msg 
to my machine, and issued the delete to the server, it truly was deleted, 
then they would need a search warrant to my machine in order to see 
yesterdays emails already pulled.  The move has been to make the ISP's hold 
those supposedly deleted messages till the statutes run out, and TBT, there 
probably isn't an ISP on the planet with THAT much storage, not without 
treating it like an unfunded mandate.  Which it sure is.

Cheers, Gene
