Emails :Oversight and Oversight

Perhaps it is in the wake of the NSA revelations, but according to the NextWeb, the Indian Government is planning to ban the use of email services such as Yahoo, Gmail, for official communications.

I have no idea whether that would serve to protect emails, but I am amazed if in fact official communications are supposed to be sent via Yahoo etc.

Or to turn this on its head, there have been cases in the UK where public officials have used Yahoo, Gmail, etc. and the allegations have been that they specifically used these to avoid having their official emails open to public scrutiny.

Note
I came across the NextWeb article via TechinBiz
