When Eric Holder was running the U.S. Department of Justice he apparently did use government email, it’s just that he didn’t go by his own name:

The name Holder reportedly used? Lew Alcindor:
The Lew Alcindor revelation was made in a February 16 letter that DOJ sent to VICE News and Ryan Shapiro, a historian and doctoral candidate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who specializes in national security research.
“For your information,” the letter said, “e-mails in the enclosed documents which use the account name ‘Lew Alcindor’ denote e-mails to or from former Attorney General Holder.”
The letter was part of about 500 pages of heavily redacted emails and other documents given to VICE News and Shapiro in response to a FOIA lawsuit filed in late 2014.
It’s that kind of openness we’ve come to expect from this administration.
