ye-e-e-e-e-s, but that does not explain the amazing "coincidence" that the hard drives of six other employees under investigation also crashed at the same time that Lerner's drive supposedly crashed.

As far as I can tell, the agency is using exchange servers with Microsoft Outlook e-mail clients. In a system like this, messages are normally stored on the server. However, the IRS sharply limits the size of mailboxes. In 2009, the limit was 150 megabytes; by 2011, it had increased that to 500 MB. Either way, this is a low limit, in these days of sizable attachments. This would require anyone but the proverbial Web-browsing grandmother to regularly archive their e-mails on a hard drive or delete them.

Maybe they should start thinking in revamping their server data.
