I would maintain that was not the reason at all. The reason was to prevent her emails from easy accessibility to FOIA requests, which she knew would be coming. It wasn't so much convenience as it was deception and avoidance of the FOIA law. If they were on a private server most people did not know about, those emails would be inaccessible to legal scrutiny.
I believe your right with FOIA being a motivating factor(at least one). The "convenience", was her 'official' excuse.
She has admitted to being basically computer illiterate, so going to the trouble of pulling together a server is mind-boggling to begin with. I get that she did not understand the intricacies of what she was doing, so to ask whether she had ssh or ftp or an admin login and all that is really a moot point. Do you think she could tell you what "ftp" means? Me neither.
The reason I mentioned ssh and ftp, is because if they where running, anyone that had login credentials could have access to all data on the server from anywhere in the world, without having to hack anything. When you have non-government, un-vetted administrators in charge those credentials, who knows what kind of activities where going on. Selling credentials, selling access, selling info? Something to think about. All thanks to Hillary. Or maybe she had a remote access program for herself?
