Not many people knew that.
It might even be the law [?]
Ours does automatic back-ups, but you have to be a director before the IT guys would admit it and un-delete e-mails that shouldn't have been deleted.
Basically, if you wanted to delete all evidence of an e-mail you'd had to take an axe to our back-up servers which, in our case, are located somewhere in the Arizona desert.
