FBI officials probably need GMail

According to CNN, some FBI agents do not have e-mail accounts because of budget contraints.

"As ridiculous as this might sound, we have real money issues right now, and the government is reluctant to give all agents and analysts dot-gov accounts," Mark Mershon said when asked about the gap at a New York Daily News editorial board meeting.

E-mail addresses are still being assigned though 100 city agents have been given Internet-ready phones such as BlackBerry devices.
