The stolen emails recently published by WikiLeaks reveal that President Barack Obama's email address during the presidential transition at the end of the 2008 campaign was email@example.com.
Five emails sent to or from that email address are in the hacked email files of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton campaign chief, which date back to the 2008 campaign. The hacked emails show the Obama team was focused on preparing for the administration transition well before Election Day.
The Clinton campaign has not confirmed that the emails released by WikiLeaks are legitimate documents, and CNBC cannot independently authenticate the emails.

In the end, they developed a secure workaround and the president was able to continue to use mobile email.
Disclosure of emails from Obama himself in the WikiLeaks trove — the theft of which intelligence officials have said was enabled by Russian intelligence — indicated that intelligence officials were right to be concerned about the privacy of the president's communications at the time.

Aside from specific apps needed for work, the most casual Mac users can probably survive without anything more than the bundled software. iLife is a surprisingly capable office suite (Apple even promotes Keynote as a tool for interface design), and recent versions of Safari are more energy efficient than any other macOS-compatible browser.
