    The authors' suggestion raises serious spoliation issues, as well as practical drawbacks when the attorney wants to locate an email, or more often an attachment, from some time back that did not seem worth filing at the time. A preferrable system would be to send emails to an archive folder instead of deleting them. Outlook can be configured to do this automatically, and I assume other programs can as well. It would serve the same purpose the authors would like to address while still preserving the emails.
