This could be handy for lovers who may send very very private emails

I just thought of something.
Can one use N.S.A. as a cloud to retrieve their lost email?

Hi there
Sorry to disappoint you -- because whatever YOUR screen shows you (the "Client Computer") you don't have any control over what the SERVER has already done or stored already before you even RECEIVE the email. Once you've pressed SEND also then the control has passed out of your hands.

The only way is to use some sort of specialized encryption or make use of "The Secret Internet" or "Dark Internet" as it's sometimes known as.

Since this is getting into a shady / grey area if you want more info on those topics you are on your own - but research on these will certainly flag up queries in places like the USA's NSA for example.

Cheers
jimbo

The email you send hits your email server, that in turn sends the email directly to the recipient's email server, where the recipient can retrieve it. Both the sender and recipient email servers can be in the "cloud", for example Gmail to Yahoo; in which case, the email goes directly to Yahoo without hitting any other clouds.

It sounds like the message which is sent to Agent Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible movie series.

Cr00zng I don't understand this.

What I do know is once you send something using the internet it goes to a server, cloud server, or grandma's bucket. What ever someone wants to call it. Once it is there the sender has no control over it.
The people who have access and control of the server,cloud or bucket can delete, change, store or analyze the sent item.

depends on what software is running on the server.

Any half-decent mail client can alter and delete stuff on the mail server (for the mail accounts linked to the user anyway).

In this case, the action is just set to propagate to the recipient's own mail server, and client. Which means the server will send a message to the other mail server saying "hey, gotta delete that message, please do so asap".

Again, this is pretty easy to do if you have both a client and a server application that are designed to do that (like the one described in the OP).
But the feature works only for servers that support this feature (i.e. have installed the server-side software)

Wonder if they can be un-deleted, just as any other file can. Or restored from backup.........

RC hangs ~every 4 seconds for about 2-3 seconds
Pretty much the title here. Except sometimes it will work just fine if I'm not doing too much. The startup also hangs after the splash logo to the login screen for about 10 seconds. In build 7000, there was no lag at all. Any ideas? Driver suggestions? Not sure.... Thanks!
