A recent interview from Merkel (politic leader in Germany) reported that Germany and France will try to avoid US server. This reminds me how Europe is sometimes, making declarations about things they do not even know. This is just impossible to avoid, especially when most of e-mail accounts are now managed by gmail, hotmail and other free e-mails providers.
Sure, France and Germany tried to counter this take-over on our data a while ago. Some initiatives like Quaero were aiming at using European IT infrastructure. The issue? This project was done the European way, giving money to university and friends without asking anything in return.
