It's not a great idea to run a government using Yahoo! e-mail accounts.
That's the word from experts, anyway, reacting to news that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's Yahoo! e-mail had been hacked earlier this week. McCain's vice-presidential pick apparently used the accounts to communicate with key aides about government business.
The practice is dangerous, said experts, and can run counter to laws ensuring government is open and accountable -- a tough point for Palin, who has made "open government" a catchphrase of her political identity.
By using non-governmental email systems, "Your information is out there available, beyond the official mechanisms there to protect it," said Amit Yoran, the nation's first cybersecurity chief. Yoran is now CEO of Netwitness Corp., a computer security firm for government and private entities.

She was interacting with .gov emails. Since she was in an official role it is prurient to believe that she was conducting business.

There is zero proof right now that she was doing GOV BUSINESS via her personal account. So what if she was emailing TO .gov addresses.
