DearCustomer- If they have given you permission to open the email then it can't be a criminal offense to open it.

Although, permission was given to open up this person's email criminal investigator popped up. What could this mean?
I have no idea how there could be anything criminal involved if there was permission given. Since I don't have any more facts there's really nothing I can analyze or review.
You will need to explain this a little more. Who is saying there is a criminal investigation? If there is permission to open an email there just can't be anything criminal about it.
I don't know the meaning of that. I would ask the person who gave the permission if they know of any problem. They would be the only person who could complain about opening the email illegally. If you have not been contacted by anyone regarding this then the only way to find out is to contact the owner of the email.
