Is it the owner of the discussion list (the moderator)? If the message was posted with the inclusion of the initial message text to another discussion group, who owns it then? As Mann and Stewart note, some hold that any type of quoting necessitates crediting the source (2000: 45). Otherwise, use of the data is a violation of copyright. Another perspective is that when we read something that wasn’t sent to us or something in a discussion group that is a response to a particular individual’s posting, we are, so to speak, overhearing someone else’s conversation (Lawson, 2004: 90).

Although the handling of a security breach may seem minor, if an institution’s policy is to shut down anything and everything first, and then take its time resolving a problem, this situation could leave your research project offline for many days. This can be considerably frustrating if the researcher has limited knowledge of the problem and considers the problem a minor issue. Therefore, it is advisable to have clarity regarding security issues prior to embarking on a study. In addition to traditional issues of security, there is a need to be clear on intellectual property rights and any confidential information related to a research project.

Locally installed mail client applications need to be able to access a mail box or mail store. If the local computer is a mail server, then the mail store may be on the local file system, but, much more likely, the mail client is used to access a mail store on separate mail server. The mail client needs to be set up with the correct connection parameters to the mail server. There are a few different protocols for communication between mail clients and mail servers, among them POP and IMAP, which are internet standards, and MAPI, which is a Microsoft protocol.
