    Even more likely – if the person who is the owner of the account has a clue, it is just downloaded as a regular pop account and the server side emails are routinely deleted. There’s no reason to think because it is a GMail account – it is accessed only online.

    Those documents and the follow up emails from the bank could have gone a lot of places by now – and are certainly out of the hands of Google once the account holder accesses them.

    Can the court really force google to inactivate a gmail account? I wonder if google could appeal this decision and win.

    This just blows my mind. I’m sorry, but Rocky Mountain Bank was in the wrong here. Totally in the wrong. They should have reprimanded their employee instead. I would have to question as to WHY did the employee have to email ANYONE a list of sensitive information? Do people NOT know or realize that emailing from one address to another is NOT safe or confidential as we are lead to believe. Emails can be intercepted along the route by hackers and those who use script programs to spy on mail servers and such.

    I sincerely hope that Rocky Mountain Bank customers have heard about this story and hope that they close their accounts at Rocky Mountain Bank PRONTO and find another bank to do business at. Rocky Mountain Bank needs to take responsibility of their own f**k up instead of blaming someone else or trying to pretend that a criminal phantom exists when it doesn’t.

    Just who the hell does Rocky Mountain Bank think they are to take away someone’s right to have an email account? Corporations like them seriously disgust me. I hope that whoever the person is that had their email account taken away, I hope that person sues the living sh** out of Rocky Mountain Bank AND Google.
