This site parses the emails sent and received by Sarah Palin while she was governor of Alaska and presents them in a more familiar interface.
To create Sarah’s Inbox, we used the digitized emails released by Crivella West, Mother Jones, ProPublica and msnbc.com. (Those groups undertook the Herculean tasks of purchasing, collecting thousands of pages of printed emails, scanning and digitizing the emails using optical character recognition technology.)
You may find that some records are garbled or incomplete, or that conversations are fractured or threaded when they should not be. Please bear with us: the source documents are extremely messy and the OCR technology is less than perfect. We're working to improve the quality of the documents hosted here.
Due to the programmatic nature of the tools used to build this site, we recommend checking any research effort against the source files.
