There are frequent stories in the news of e-mail messages playing a prominent role in litigation or a scandal. Linda Tucci, a Senior News Writer for SearchCIO.com, covers the latest scandal in the Boston mayoral race from the angle of how that situation highlights the need for enterprises to implement an e-mail policy and technology.
