Audit trail

I thought using private, non-government email accounts was not allowed for any work related stuff

" email exchanges with 9/11 Commission members, banking information, personal correspondence, and documents covering the latest Obama administration's transition earlier this year."

If this is the case how do Microsoft come into it, they do not guarantee "your content (as defined later) will be safeguarded", to what extent are they sharing information and location with other companies as they see fit. How are these other companies or Microsoft vetted?

And even more so who do people working in those companies (or with access )react once they are aware of this hack, might someone then trawl through accounts related to this one with a simple search providing they had access.

Clearly "privacy" == "public".

Do you and your monkey have anything to hide?
