Charter accidentaly deletes 14,000 email accounts Answered

Officials at Charter believe a glitch in software during routine maintenance caused the e-mail accounts to be deleted. The company is offering $50 credits to customers who were affected.

A company representative told the news service that there was no way to retrieve the messages, photos or other attachments that had been sitting in people's in-boxes when they were deleted.

This is why I use something like Hotmail/Windows live, they're more reliable. I highly doubt that a "software glitch" caused 14,000 email adresses to be deleted. That's a good chunk of data and it would have taken a while, I'm sure some one would have noticed. I'm guessing someone boycotted their system and they're covering it up.

How did the emails get deleted?
