Meanwhile I wonder if this act by his wife would be actionable.
This guy is a moron. That's what you get for using ISP email.

Re: So, let me get this straight...
said by Nightfall:+1 and I agree. It sucks, we see it here as well. Had one lady that chewed on me and my contacts because her ex husband killed the account. Cost her a $250 ETF. She hit the roof but guess what?!?!? She left him in charge of the account while the funds were coming out of her bank account.
A man opens an account. This guy also adds his wife to the account, which makes sense. His wife has full access to the account as a result. Then, his wife felt the need to cancel the account since they are going through a messy divorce. The man, who is pissed off that his account was removed and all his emails deleted as a result, calls customer care to complain. The customer care rep said that "something happened" but didn't explain.
I guess the only issue I see here is that his wife was a vindictive spouse.
Did the man give her access to the account? Yes
Did the woman have access to delete everything since she was on the account? Yes
Was the account deleted by someone who didn't have access? No
Seems like a pretty open and shut case to me. If I was him, I would go back and ask for the account to be reopened and his email account restored. Oh, and don't add the soon to be ex-spouse to the account as well.
long story short, karl's article just explains the problem with having joint accounts. If it can happen here, what happens when it's a bank account?
I wish my life lessons where that cheap!

Not the ISP's Problem This is not the ISP's problem, it's his problem. He added her to the account and she then used the authority to delete the account. It's not the ISP's job to play referee in this situation. It's also not their job to keep backups of everything just in case the evil bitch does this kind of thing.
I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.

Re: Reason #99??
said by stray:you mean reason #1 and #2 (though not necessarily in that order)
Yet another reason never to use your ISP for your email account, the number one reason being that it makes things hard when you're switching ISPs, whether you're getting a divorce or just a better deal elsewhere on internet service.
