Huh? You must be kidding....
I worked for TWC until about a year ago. Believe you me, they don't have
the infrastructure to store your outbound email. In fact, with the
difficulty of keeping up with an ever growing customer base, they're barely
able to keep up with the requirements to store your inbound email. Frankly,
I would not have been working there if they were doing all of that Big
Brother crap, nor would half of my coworkers, most likely.
