Mystery E-Mails

I wonder how anyone could possibly have laid hands on e-mails which went to the heart of state capture in South Africa -- exchanges on "private computers" between the people principally involved. It is all in the news this weekend. I had my own such experience, at the close of my city ministry. Somebody slipped me e-mails which had passed between the Church accounts clerk and Church auditor (who was later revealed as being bogus). I never knew who slipped me those e-mails or how or when. I just noticed them in front of me one day. I am still baffled as to how they could have materialised.

Someone else in the office?

It was personal laptops, not office computers. The e-mails were about financial documents which had been "corrected" after they had been signed off.
