Thanks for your question and good evening.
My suggestion here is to destroy the e-mails and say nothing.If challenged on this someday again admit to nothing.Honestly its not clear that you weren't entitled to access here since she left it on your pc.She will not be able to prove this if you just stay silent.the sites do not release such evidence to people and it is often erased at some point.All you need do is destroy the evidence and not mention it to anyone.You have the right to remain silent and should utilize that.I do not see this as affecting custody.You may keep the knowledge you have gained and use it to your advantage indirectly.But I see no reason to go there with any of this.I do not necessarily think you did anything illegal your best move is to let it go and move forward with your divorce.
