WASHINGTON (AP) — The computer server that transmitted and received Hillary Clinton's official emails when she was secretary of state traced back to an residential Internet service registered to her family's home in Chappaqua (CHAP'-uh-kwah), New York.

Internet records reviewed by The Associated Press disclosed the service registered to the Clinton home.

The practice of Clinton, a likely Democratic presidential candidate, physically running her own email as a Cabinet-level official is highly unusual.

She has not described her motivation for using a private email account or her own private email server. Most individuals who operate their own email servers are technical experts or users so concerned about issues of privacy and surveillance they take matters into their own hands.
