Police target free email
Simon Hayes
JULY 21, 2003

THE Federal Police is talking with the major free email providers in the
hope of making it easier to trace suspects who use the accounts for crimes
like fraud and paedophilia.

The news came as an ex-NCA member suggested abolishing free email accounts
as a way to better identify offenders online.
Admitting that the AFP had difficulty gaining access to subscriber details
often stored with the US offices of email providers, Australian High Tech
Crime Centre director Alastair MacGibbon said discussions were in train with
the local offices of major providers.
