Answer: Bill Clinton
President to use email Bill Clinton. In office between 1
"I sent a grand total of two emails as president, one to our troops in the Adriatic, and one to John Glenn when he was 77 years old in outer space. I figured it was OK if Congress subpoenaed those. "
If you're curious about what happened to the laptop featured in the photo above, it's a little backstory to that too. Clinton wanted to send an email to John Glenn in space. The White House, at the time, was so unprepared for the event that the president had a computer. Darling kept the laptop until 2000 when he sold it. It was later auctioned off by its second owner in 2014 to an undisclosed buyer for nearly $ 61,000.
As for email at the White House, following the early (and sparse) use of email by President Clinton , George W. Bush significantly increased email usage in the Oval Office during his two terms compared to Clinton's sparse two emails. When Barack Obama took office in 2009, he was very open about how important he was. Although they have come to terms with the White House and Capitol Hill, they have all been in the 21st century now.
