Email retention…is it easier to delete important information and pay fines than it is to figure out how to control the content people put within email messages?

There continues to be more news made about businesses and their email retention practices.  Today it was reported that Morgan Stanley proposed paying a $15 million dollar fine as a result of the firm not appropriately or adequately retaining emails.  Other fines have been in the news as well.  Considering the hugely expanding amount of email messages being sent and used each day for business…do we all really need a darned Blackberry with us 24/7?…companies really do need to re-examine their policies regarding the use of email for business.  It could result in huge fines or even jail time, depending upon the information personnel put within the messages, if it is not properly addressed.
