According to Reuters...

4 million email communications written by the presidential staff during the Clinton era are to be put into a library archive, including the only two emails ever sent by Bill himself - and one of those was a test message.

The other was to the orbiting space shuttle, making astronaut John Glenn the only person in history to receive an email from President Clinton.

Man, Al Gore went through all that work inventing the internet, and his boss wouldn't even use it.

What did Clinton's e-mail to Sen. Glen say, "Now that you've got your ride I'm looking forward to your 'not guilty' vote?"

Sorry, but it's an election year. To be fair Glenn retired from the U.S. senate, effective several days before the verdict was voted on. However, he was a member of the "jury pool" at the time of his 2nd space flight.

Here's a link to six time space shuttle astronaut Story Musgrave's opinoins on the Glenn mission:

Musgrave told it like it was.
