a good rule of thumb, if you wouldn't want someone to physically hear you say something or otherwise personally know what you've said, don't "say it" on your computer

Email, if you log in at the Hotmail site then it would normally be possible to retrieve the details through the browser history.

More than 12 billion instant messages are sent worldwide every day, and of those, one billion are sent from workstations, reports IDC, a Framington, Mass.-based consultancy. The skyrocketing popularity of IM raises interesting forensic implications. For example, instant messaging by Congress member Mark Foley, in the recent page scandal, demonstrates how IMs can be traced back to the sender, and how content can be recovered in investigations or litigation.
I am curious to know if conversations and emails previously sent can be recovered even if the MSN isn't set to save messages?

even if your machine isn't set to record the IMs the information has to pass through your system somewhere so that you can see the chat progress etc... normal people can't get to this info bot IT forensic types have special tricks up their sleeve
hence the "a good rule of thumb, if you wouldn't want someone to physically hear you say something or otherwise personally know what you've said, don't "say it" on your computer "
