mdoneil writes "Robert Muller head of the FBI said all agents to not have external email addresses because it may be a security threat.
"E-mails can also be the source of viruses," said Mueller. "They can be a source of worms. They can be used to launch denial of service attacks. And consequently, in our secure environment we have to use e-mail in a closed system, but also have access to e-mail outside. And we do have that."
