A batch of emails sent and received on Hillary Clinton's home server when she was secretary of state shows she was aware that continued used of her BlackBerry phone posed security risks, according to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Clinton emailed health care advocate Dr. Mark Hyman on February 27, 2009, apologizing for not replying to him earlier.

"I'm so sorry but I'm just seeing this (no blackberry contact permitted in my office)," she wrote.

The State Department does not allow use of unsecured phones in areas where classified information is discussed.

Clinton's staff tried without success to get Clinton a secure BlackBerry, and the secretary continued using her unsecure one when she was not in areas where it was disallowed.

The email was part of the most recent batch released to Judicial Watch under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. The same batch also revealed that Clinton at least once told an aide to call her on her home phone when a secure line wasn't working.
