Emails

Post by Dreamweaver »

Friend writes -
Curious and creeped out. Did a quick check of my emails through the Telstra website and found ALL my emails there. The ones that have been downloaded to my PC and then deleted from the server. Ages ago. So is there now some sort of nefarious backwash going on? Is this some new government-approved spying thing? What in the Sam Hill is happening?!?!

I'm not sure I understand about checking the Telstra website, but it's worth noting that deletion doesn't mean physical deletion. To do that requires a step known as purging.

Thanks Perry, I'll tell her. Further enquiries went like this -
Me: Have you received any hints about this? Weird!
· Reply · : No idea what's going on. I did a closer check and it turns out there's a whole bunch that I deleted from my pc some time ago showing up in Telstra webmail. They weren't in webmail before because when I download emails they're removed from the server. Wormholes?As I said, creepy.
