Erm, no - MS already have already told Uncle Sam to do one in exactly those circumstances.

They gave up on that as soon as the CLOUD act passed - https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/04/04/microsoft_agrees_doj_cloud_act_renders_email_battle_moot/ (sorry can't remember how to link this)

Given that has MS already has European-only data centres where they keep data for EU clients, that's gonna take quite a jackboot!

I thought they were moving them back to the US now, after the recent privacy policy update (that i can't seem to find any trace of, which makes me question either my memory or my Google skills...)
