Who owns your email?

“Lawyer Presses Mueller on Emails,” The Wall Street Journal, December 18, 2017 A4.  Questions arise after a government agency (later identified as the GSA) turns over Presidential transition team emails to Mr. Mueller.

Who owns the emails of non-governmental employees who use storage provided by a government agency?  And must the Special Counsel file a subpoena before getting information from a third party?

Where is your company’s email stored? Who owns it?

If there’s anything in those emails, are they “fruit of the poisonous tree” as the Special Counsel did not get a warrant?
