Where Does E-mail Go, and Who Can Access It?

Some people might wonder what happens to their e-mail after they click Send. The section “How E-mail Works” illustrated the process of how e-mail gets from point A to point B, but what happens to it at point B? The e-mail is stored on a server somewhere until the recipient retrieves it. The people who own and manage the e-mail server might choose to do a few different things with the e-mail that passes through:

  • Archive all e-mail messages

  • Journal all e-mail messages

  • Back up the e-mail server

  • Administer the e-mail server
