DCA FOI release: Email guidance for staff

An interesting document has come to light on the DCA disclosure log concerning guidance about email:
"Guidance to staff on the use of e-mail issued in July 2004 by the Head of the Home Civil Service. The guidance covers email status, content, disclosability, responsibility and storage / destruction."

The document in the form of a memo from Sir Andrew Tunrbull, is interesting in light of the media stories that surrounded the Cabinet Office emai deletion story back in December. The guidance recommends swift deletion of email that are not "for the record"
