Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I've no ideas where the PCs were examined - although I would doubt they bothered shipping them to England.  Compucentre apparently had the contract to run the network, so would have had personnel here locally.  However I'll see what I can find out.  The bigger point is that the PCs were never independently forensically examined, and who knows who "pavellong@googlemail.com" is?  Any way of finding out?  It could even have been a set up to provide incriminating evidence.  At the moment we only have the Company's word for everything.

Well from first looks there's no signs of the address anywhere on the internet (apart from here) but if you send a test email there it doesn't bounce and fail through being a non-existent address (possibly gmail doesn't reply in this way as an anti-spam measure). Id ask the person who received it if they know who it is, being Googlemail then its a UK address, but that's all you can really tell without access to the  full mail files.

Is Googlemail the brand Google uses for gmail in the UK?

Yes.
We have been involved in a dispute regarding the Gmail trademark in the UK. Another company has claimed rights to the Gmail name. We have tried to resolve this dispute through negotiations, but our efforts have failed.

We are still working with the courts and trademark office to protect our ability to use the Gmail name, but in the meantime, we want you to have an email address you can rely on.

Any way of finding out?

If it is bogus I guess emailing will not give answers.

If there is some form of crime involved the police could probably get answers from Google. Google stores information, the data retention directive probably means all relevant info is saved at different points. I am not a lawyer, but good luck accessing that data. It is not like it is trrrism or sharing music involved.

The twin crimes of the hippie/commie era!  The Company has never claimed the workers did anything illegal - the question ceebs raises is whether the Company did!

One thing to find out is whether the sacked members of staff were given full copies of the emails they have been dismissed over,including the full header information. You'd also want to look at the full written versions of staff email policies.
