Will Maine lead the way on e-mail archiving and retrieval?

Eric Conrad of the Kennebec Journal wrote a reflective and clear article earlier this week that lays out why being able to access the e-mail sent and received by public employees and officials is so important.

I learned from the article that Maine is further ahead of the curve in terms of figuring out ways to archive those e-mails so they can readily be searched and retrieved than other states. For one thing, it only has 13,000 e-mail users. Additionally, the e-mail system those employees all use appears to have greater retrieval capacities than the e-mail systems some other states use.

Other states can’t produce e-mails; some newspapers aren’t asking the right questions.
