I have a confession to make. Even though we have a corporate e-mail server at my company, I have been using Gmail for my primary business e-mail going back to 2002. I love the ability to search old records and conversations from the past. With Google’s technology , searching gmail was second to none. Sometimes , I searched just for nostalgia purposes, like the final e-mail conversation I had wih my Mom when my dad was taken off dialysis in hospice, and sometimes for business reasons. Unfortunately my world has recently been shattered. All my e-mail prior to 2008 is completely gone, and I have searched far and wide for a policy from Gmail that might explain why. I pay a monthly fee for google storage and was well below my limit, I have tried their support forums and so far just silence. If you are a long time e-mail users I suggest you try to search your archives. Ten years seems to be the cut off where things got dumped or lost.
And no , have not been corresponding with any Russian operatives!
