Indeed, it is true.
In fact, according to Anne O’Connor, NIFLA’s General Counsel, while not every email can be printed and saved, any communication that you would normally keep communication on – whether sent via mail or e-mail, a copy should be retained. Anything to do with client communications, contracts, employment, confidential info, legal issues, financial issues, board related issues. If you would make a copy of it when you were sending via mail, then you should keep a copy when you are sending it via e-mail.
Good to know…thanks Anne.
