Social media responds that it took them 11 months to go through 33,000 emails, and just 11 days to go through 650,000 emails.
There were 650,000 emails on a computer used by Anthony Weiner.
They were looking for specific emails to or from Hillary Clinton.
Anyone that has ever used email knows you can sort by sender or sort by who it is sent to.
Time to do that sort? Less than one minute.
Time to write a program to do that sort and pull the metadata from those emails? About 10 minutes.
Time to run the program on a reasonably modern computer for 650,000 emails? Less than an hour.
The metadata will give you sender, recipient, time stamp, subject line.
Now, you need only run the same program for the other 30,000 emails and then search for any that are not duplicates. Time to do that? About 2 hours.
If they are all duplicates then you are finished and have found nothing new.
