Microsoft alters Hotmail policy amid blogger inbox probe outcry
Microsoft has moved to address concerns caused by news it rummaged through a blogger's Hotmail inbox as part of an investigation into an employee's conduct.
As we've reported, even though this is a tremendous PR cock-up, Microsoft was well within its rights to dive into a blogging hack's private Hotmail account to root out an alleged Windows 8 leaker – all thanks to the terms and conditions attached to its Outlook.com and Hotmail services.
But in these post-Snowden times, the thought of anyone scouring a private email account is bound to raise eyebrows. A great many have arced skywards since news of this case emerged, and Microsoft has responded in a widely circulated statement penned by Redmond veep and deputy general counsel John Frank.
