    Pretty sure the answer is no, you can't. And the way it was explained to me is that there is no one drive/server/data farm with your data - it is dispersed around various facilities that could be anywhere. So in that sense "where is my email held" can't even be answered.

    Hi Nathan did you pose this question because of data protection concerns? If so I suggest reading up on 'Safe Harbour'
