Linux "At the end of 2010, the 'open-source' software movement, whose activists tend to be fringe academics and ponytailed computer geeks, found an unusual ally: the Russian government. Vladimir Putin signed a 20-page executive order requiring all public institutions in Russia to replace proprietary software, developed by companies like Microsoft and Adobe, with free open-source alternatives by 2015."

You miss my point.

What I'm saying is businesses and governments wouldn't have e-mail traffic going from workstations to the internet. They'd have that traffic going to and from the exchange server.

So the firewall would still block your example as only the exchange server would be whitelisted for sending e-mails.


Now I'm not saying that it's impossible to hide data, just that it's unlikely to be happening because of the difficulty in doing so successfully and the backlash when it inevitably gets found out.
