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 firstname.lastname@example.org as the official email ID of the President!
