The IRS Has A Contract With A Company That Backs Up All Of Their Emails!Submitted by go213mph on Sat, 06/21/2014 - 14:40
Friday afternoon, Peter Suderman posted an article at Reason.com that proved the IRS had an ongoing contract with a private company to back up the IRS servers, including the Microsoft Exchange system used to handle the IRS emails! This article was an instant sensation and was quickly reported by the Independent Media on the internet.
Shortly afterwards the original article at Reason.com was taken down, and the URL produced a 404 "file not found" error. But by then it was too late as the original article was already duplicated at my web site and other locations. The copies spreading across the net made it very clear that the report would not be silenced, and realizing that the act of trying to erase the original was propelling the story, the original post was restored to Reason.com later that same day.
More online evidence began to surface of an ongoing contract between the IRS and a company called "Sonasoft", whose slogan is "Email archiving done right." The company specializes in archiving emails from Microsoft Exchange Server, confirming that the IRS mail system does not in fact simply store emails on the hard drives of the desktop computers! A solicitation at the General Service Administration's own website (and also archived HERE) shows the IRS contracting with Sonasoft in 2008, before the period of the emails sought by Ryan and Issa. Note that the products specified relate to backing up Microsoft Exchange, the IRS' email server! SmartProcure.us showed the IRS as being Sonasoft's top government customer in 2010, right in the middle of the period Koskinen says the dog ate Lois Lerner's (and six other IRS officials') emails! And Sonasoft's list of customers (also archived HERE) shows the IRS is still a customer to this very day!
