Some 4.2 million email accounts will fall under foreign jurisdictions.
Telstra has confirmed that the emails of its 4.2 million BigPond customers will be hosted offshore under a planned migration to the Windows Live cloud platform.
The telco, which announced the migration on Friday, originally told iTnews and several other publications that email data will continue to be stored locally in Australia.
This was not incorrect.
What Telstra hasn’t made public on its web site is that Microsoft will be hosting the service offshore. Telstra will simply store a mirror (copy) of this data in Australia to remain compliant with Australian law.
