I'm with Scott McNeally.

"You _have_ no privacy on the Internet. Get over it."

If I cared, I could run my own server, PGP everything, etc. I am capable of it.

But [a] life's too short [b] Gmail is a very good service, runs on all
my PCs and devices, keeps them all in sync -- mail, address book and
calendar [c] Even if I did go PGP-crazy, there are very few people I
could communicate with.

I have other email addresses. Lots of 'em. About 5 still get checked
regularly. But, frankly, Gmail is the best, so I stay with it.

I am paranoid enough to use a local client to keep a local backup, though...
