As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton eschewed a “state.gov” email account and instead used a personal email address run off a server at her home. Wherever they originated, her emails are part of the government record, to be archived and made available to the public upon request. We explore the tech challenges of storing, securing and searching government emails and releasing them to the public for Freedom of Information Act requests, Congressional and legal proceedings and journalistic and scholarly research.
