Mortimer.CA (666) writes "Yale Daily News is reporting that the move to Gmail has been postponed. After further consultations with faculty and staff, the concerns raised "fell into three main categories: problems with "cloud computing" (the transfer of information between virtual servers on the Internet), technological risks and downsides, and ideological issues." In the latter category, "Google was not willing to provide ITS with a list of countries to which the University's data could be sent [i.e., replicated ], but only a list of about 15 countries to which the data would not be sent.""
