One of Hillary's mystery email address' was mau_suit@clintonemail.com,
There has been a lot of speculation as to who could have used this address...and what it was used for.
It has even been associated with theories that it had to do with Hillary's Mao-like pantsuits.
To date, nothing has really been put forward to explain it.

Let's start with 'mau_"...
Here's what I discovered:



multistation access unit (MSAU) definition

A multistation access unit (MSAU) is occasionally abbreviated as MAU. However, MAU is more frequently the abbreviation for the Ethernet media attachment unit.

A multistation access unit (MSAU) is a hub or concentrator that connects a group of computers ("nodes" in network terminology) to a token ring local area network. For example, eight computers might be connected to an MSAU in one office and that MSAU would be connected to an MSAU in another office that served eight other computers. In turn that MSAU could be connected to another MSAU in another office which would be connected back to the first MSAU. Such a physical configuration is called a star topology. However, the logical configuration is a ring topology because every message passes through every computer one at a time, each passing it on to the next in a continuing circle.

An advantage of an MSAU is that if one computer fails in the ring, the MSAU can bypass it and the ring will remain intact.

For larger networks, two additional ports on the MSAU (ring-in and ring-out) are available for connecting multiple MSAUs together. For example, using three MSAUs, the ring-out port of MSAU 1 is connected to the ring-in port of MSAU 2. The ring-out port of MSAU 2 is connected to the ring-in port of MSAU 3 and the ring-out port of MSAU 3 is connected to the ring-in port of MSAU 1, completing the ring. In such an example, up to 24 computers can be connected to the token ring network.

Now, Hillary's I.T. guy taking the 5th. had me thinking. Could the '_suit' portion stand for "Super User I. T.?

Here is the definition for 'Super User...an IT term:
su·per·us·er
[ˈso͞opərˌyo͞ozər]
NOUN
a user of a computer system with special privileges needed to administer and maintain the system; a system administrator.

From the definition, alone, wouldn't a 'Super User' effectively give some individual or entity completely unfettered 'back door' entry into EVERYTHING within Hillary Clinton's system?

In summation: mau_suit@clintonemail.com
represents Multistation Access Unit_Super User I.T.

From the definition, alone, wouldn't a 'Super User' effectively give some individual or entity completely unfettered 'back door' entry into EVERYTHING within Hillary Clinton's system?

Thoughts, ATS Tech Geeks?

Solid thought process.


The problem with that is who uses Token Ring anymore? Hell who uses hubs anymore with switching being the way to go for years now.

Ethernet is the predominant network for LAN connectivity..that isn't to say that maybe you might find some old TR or other types of topologies out but the majority of everything you find is Ethernet. To me this is a bit like numerology, look hard enough at anything and you can find a pattern that validates your thought process regardless of if that thought process is likely.

Does that mean you theory isn't right , of course not , but based on the info available it's just as valid as my saying Make Another Useless_SUIT explains the email address.

content of a sent email to that address would say much.

Maybe MAU is a person's or geographic place initials.

MAU- Massive Ass Uniform.
Suit- designates that unlike a dress, this is a pants suit.

I suspect it's the mail address she used when talking to Bill. After all, he is the one who had to answer that question we all hate. (Does this suit make my ass look big?)

Outside possibility....

mau = Maui, Hawaii

suit = Obama

Perhaps an "inside" source at the White House?

Yeah also called a systems administratior responsible for making, and keeping it working.

I don't see anything 'sinister'.

Could "suit" refer to a lawsuit of some kind?

Doesn't Hillary's email server set up go back a few years? The MAU system could've been in use originally, right?

Wouldn't any 'Super User' (I.T. Person) have total access to the system?

If you're going token ring then its IBM gear and pretty much all of that craps gone from the business world other than those perhaps having to support a i/z series bit of kit and do we know the make of the server as i doubt unless its an rs/6000 variant it'll be using TR and who puts one of those things in a cupboard?

Literally unless you dragged some mid 1990's kit out of the attic theres very little chance we're talking token ring and the requirements probably would mean it'd never fit in a small space and when you see proper token ring cabling is probably 1/2 inch thick and doesn't really work well for this sort of thing and i think it had a 4mb/sec speed with a second version at 16mb/sec (been years so don't shoot me down over dodgy memory)

the email address could be anything "mings authentic unforms" "suits section" so when ming emails about suit cleaning/alterations it goes to the right person(s).

And thanks for the reminder of token ring...some long hours in s----y conditions running that stuff around that i really didn't want to be reminded of

That would be Bryan Pagliano...Hillary's IT specialist currently pleading the 5th...and refusing to turn over documents.

SInister about the email address of course.

Pleading the 5th ?

He is definitely hiding stuff.

What about 'Logical Access Control' through MAU?

a reply to: IAMTAT

Yep, that brings back memories, ring in and ring out, luckily we started with that sort of cabling but then went to use cat 3 then cat 5 so it wasn't as much a pain and we could use cheaper cables...the price ibm charged for that stuff was silly and would give an accountant a heart attack and one wrong cable change could seriously muck it up so any changes had to be well planned for that sort of stuff even when we got cisco routers/switches with cat 5 there was many a time someone would f--- up the ring and everything would go down and you'd spend hours chasing and checking stuff

a set and forget network is not really what token ring is about compared to ethernet.

its been about 20 years since i messed with TR stuff so everything about its hazy and like most people you only remember the bad things which meant hours of abuse as others couldn't do their jobs so they'd pass on their bosses aggro to you

The thing is token ring died as a preferred or even used choice of networks well prior to a few years ago.
In this case based on info available it just makes no sense as it being what MAU stands for.

Sure a Super User could have total access to that specific user but that doesn't mean that SUIT has anything to do with IT at all. Basically it's like looking at a cloud and seeing a clown..

No, I agree SUIT as Super User IT is speculation as well...but it makes sense as an access address for an IT administrator
...especially since one would be needed (and was: Bryan Pagliano).

As for M-A-U-...using your technical expertise, can you call to mind any technical term or acronym which logically might fit better or as well?

Thanks Max. I appreciate your input on this.
Can you suggest a serious alternative technical term, acronym or abrev. for MAU?


MAU
1. Media Attachment Unit
2. Multistation Access Unit
3. Master Access Unit

media access unit? perhaps a group of people who handle the media, or a central controller what sorts out access to different peripherals from the good old days of the mainframes.

The problem is that over the years theres been so much re-use of the 2-4 letter acronyms so without knowing what sort of background the person had in IT its impossible to know.

The link below has 7 acronyms that are technical but my question to you is why does MAU need to be technical?
