There are well-known restrictions on uploading to third party servers data that was downloaded from church systems such as MLS or LUWS, but that is a more narrow matter.
In addition, the use of email is left up to the judgment of local priesthood leaders, and email uses third party servers. I think most bishoprics regularly use email, including email attachments, to communicate with each other.
As another example, our bishop has adopted Google Docs to share such things as agendas and action items among local leaders. I don't think that is unique. So long as no downloads from church systems are involved, I know of no policy being violated.
Almost all specific question about interpreting policy end up being referred to local priesthood leaders anyway. The original poster above, and the stake authorities he is working with, are local priesthood leaders.

My only comment was about the phrase "third-party." You have assumed I was insinuating way more than what was actually said.

It seems to imply that 3rd party servers extend to more than just storing data exported from MLS or LUWS.
