the official IRS position on emails

to quote from it

All federal employees and federal contractors are required by law to preserve records containing adequate and proper documentation of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, and essential transactions of the agency. Records must be properly stored and preserved, available for retrieval and subject to appropriate approved disposition schedules.

The Federal Records Act applies to email records just as it does to records you create using other media

Lerner's defense is absurd to anybody with any computer knowledge. And she and the IRS are in direct violation of their own rules. Every government agency , state or federal and almost all corporate entities keep e mail copies. To me this smacks of the word "felony", deliberate distraction of evidence. People go to jail for that...unless they work for King Obama..

to repeat the federal rules" Records must be properly stored and preserved, available for retrieval ..."
