Just to lay some groundwork for what you are about to read below, Paul Combetta an employee of Platte River Networks, which is the company that was in charge of Hillary Clinton’s email administration and home server.
Combetta was granted immunity by the DOJ recently, but he still chose to plead the 5th when questioned by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about Hillary’s emails and server. He literally can’t be prosecuted for anything he says, yet he pleaded the 5th…Why? Because he’s clearly hiding something and we just might know what.
According users on Reddit, Combetta (aka stonetear on Reddit) asked for assistance in July 2014 from Reddit users on how to purge emails and how to strip VIP’s email address from “a bunch of archived emails”, which proves he was deleting emails for a “very VIP” person. NO WAY he was doing this uninstructed.
Here is the original message that was posted to reddit. The message is now deleted, as are comments (again, more proof they are trying to cover their tracks), but archives of the messages have been recovered.
This was posted Monday on Reddit:
Paul Combetta‘s publicly attributed email address in 2014 was [email protected]…notice the name on the comments? “stonetear”

stonetear: Remove or replace to/from address on archived emails?
Hello all- I may be facing a very interesting situation where I need to strip out a VIP’s (VERY VIP) email address from a bunch of archived email that I have both in a live Exchange mailbox, as well as a PST file. Basically, they don’t want the VIP’s email address exposed to anyone, and want to be able to either strip out or replace the email address in the to/from fields in all of the emails we want to send out. I am not sure if something like this is possible with PowerShell, or exporting all of the emails to MSG and doing find/replaces with a batch processing program of some sort. Does anyone have experience with something like this, and/or suggestions on how this might be accomplished?
borismkv: There is no supported way to do what you’re asking. You can only delete emails after they’re stored in the database. You can’t change them. If there was a feature in Exchange that allowed this, it could result in major legal issues. There may be ways to hack a solution, but I am not aware of any. permalinkembedsavegive gold
As a PST file or exported MSG files, this could be done though, yes? The issue is that these emails involve the private email address of someone you’d recognize, and we’re trying to replace it with a placeholder address as to not expose it.
