At this link: http://www.co.boulder.co.us/da/dl/E-mails%20scanned.pdf, which is a record of emails between Michael Tracey and John Mark Karr as well as several investigators on the JR case, I find that page 66 is rather interesting.
It seems that a FREE Hushmail account might be safer to have than a premium account! In any event, I always find such trivial information as this useful to file away. I thought some other members here might like this trivia tidbit as well.
(From the PDF)
"I spoke with the Hushmail lawyer, Steve YOUNGMAN, yesterday. FYI, the best contact number for YOUNGMAN is 604-893-8699.
With respect to the account in question, YOUNGMAN advised the following:
1. The account is active (created Sept. 2005)
2. The account is non-premium (free; basic service)
3. No IP address logs are available, to date.
YOUNGMAN also advised me of the following:
A. There is no user registration information available for the account, as it is not a 'premium' account.
B. IP Addresses could be logged, with the appropriate judicial authorization.
C. A significant amount of e-mail message content exists, with the most recent message having been sent on the day of my enquiry (May 17, 2006.)
YOUNGMAN has taken a 'snapshot' of the data associated to the suspect account, thereby preserving/archiving it until such time there is a COURT ORDER to release that data to law enforcement.
Unless there is a Canadian connection to your homicide (besides the fact that the Hushmail servers are located there), you will have to pursue an MLAT. I wish I could do something to expedite your requiest, however, without a crime having been committed in Canada, I would not be able to back a US-authorized search warrant. "
