    I read a strange thing today, that in the US, emails that are over 180 days old are considered abandoned:

    In the USA, emails are considered “abandoned” after 180 days. The government can look at these emails without a warrant thanks to the Electronic Communications Protection Act, a law passed in 1986 when electronic communications were very different.

    Is this true? Can anyone confirm this? Can the government really access all your emails over 180 days old? That is just 6 months! Best get deleting those old emails quick!

    Here is the source of the information: https://www.howtogeek.com/709693/why-you-should-delete-emails-instead-of-archiving-them/
