Ind. Gov't. - More on "Statewide electronic records policy in the works"

This question occurred to me after I posted this entry earlier this evening discussing a statewide email retention policy ...

Re the quote outlining the current Hancock County policy distinguishing between "public" emails, which are to be preserved, and "transitory" emails, which are not:

The email is public, for example, if it contains information related to the conduct of the public’s business, such as agendas, final reports or recommendations and business transactions.
The question that occurred to me: How would the emails that played such an important role in the Duke/IURC scandal have been classified under this scheme? Wouldn't they have been considered transitory?
