Hello everyone ,
I got a problems on my hands , over the years i have acquired several thousands of e-mails that hold legal value , this range from contracts , PayPal e-mails , agreements , sign-ups ans so forth . They are spread on a lot of servers some of which i would like to take down simply because they do nothing but waste server space . Given the politicians craving for putting out laws that apply retroactively for God knows how many years i want to get this burden off-line and into multiple secured storages .
My questions is how to proceed on this one , do I need to save the e-mails in a certain format ? Do they have to include the header info ? Are the e-mails still valid if the server no longer exists ? I'm interested what does the law says . I know there are U.N. trade rules and stuff that apply worldwide , I'm also interested on the legal dispositions in the U.S. , E.U. and it member states , Canada and other countries in which i could be dragged in a court of law as a E.U. citizen and as a owner of U.S. company located in Delaware .
Given the nature of the e-mails I'm interested in defending myself from claims , tax ripoffs , privacy invasions and various other lovely things some people tend to cook up.
Thank you in advance for you answers .
