Report: NARA doubted White House e-mail archives in 2004

"At the end of each administration, records are transferred to NARA. But while the administration is in office, the Presidential Records Act, gives it records management authority.

Since the White House switched its e-mail system from Lotus Notes to Microsoft Xchange in 2002, it has relied primarily on the manual process called “journaling” in which e-mail messages are manually named and saved as .pst files on White House servers."

UGH. (I think they meant to say "Exchange", unless one of the vendors involved has convinced them to use a bootleg version from China.)
