      I was informed eons ago that there is no expectation of privacy with email.  In the old days email was routed via multiple servers via store and forward (as was NNTP traffic, but that's another story); thus the email was available on multiple servers and could be read by any operator at any server.  That's not the case today where routing avoids the store and forward (and routing is 8-bit as well for another story).

      If you want security you simply must use PGP encryption for messages.  I suppose the mere fact you used PGP might bring suspicious about your activities.  Yahoo tells us that encrypted mail may or may not get processed.

      The story also says that the new preferred supplier is Critical Path, a
      privately-held specialist email provider based in California and that
      they will provide a modern secure mail system. Hopefully, not available
      to the NSA.  ;-)
