for the protection and safety of the parties involved, i cannot at this time discuss the individuals involved in the exchanges. My client deleted the emails as a safety issue.
i am not aware of when exactly the emails were deleted; I am sure; however, that it has been longer than the 60 day window mentioned by Gmail for maintenance of email on it servers. the most critical time period to recover for evidence beyond any reasonable doubt is 2/12-5/12.
HelloThank you.Gmail will retain deleted emails for up to 6 monthsAnd they can be subponeaed, though the google folks take their time in getting these matters done.
I suggest if your client was a party to the emails and they were deleted from their email you should first check the trash folder to see if the are still there.Otherwise you need to serve the Keeper of the Server/Custodian of RecordsGoogle Inc.Gmail User Support - Decedents' Accountsc/o Google Custodian of Records1600 Amphitheatre ParkwayMountain View, CA 94043Fax:(NNN) NNN-NNNNbr/>I hope that this information is helpful.
