A former North Carolina state agency worker spoke out last month, saying the state’s unwritten policy is to delete e-mails daily. Gov. Mike Easley and his staff have denied the accusation, but appointed a committee to review the policies for maintaining e-mails and text messages.

Media representatives told a state panel that every single e-mail to and from a state office constitutes a public record and should be archived.
