Sri Lankan Government Servants and Yahoo email IDs


Most of the government institutions today have their own websites and mail servers. They have heavily invested on this with ICTA funds. But most of the government servants I know use Yahoo email IDs for their official communications. This puzzles me. It would have been more respectable if they had email IDs with their domain names. Yahoo has a global identity and Sri Lankan governments should look for local identity. Their email IDs should and with a .lk domain. I cannot understand as to why the government doesn’t take actions to allocate a .lk email ID for the government servants with the institutions’ domain names. It was not very long ago that the then President’s official website used janadhipathi@hotmail.com as the official email ID of the President!
