Additionally, while Gmail doesn't sell your addy I don't feel comfortable about the "snooping" into my mail and the attachments (yes, it does scan the attachments) just to server up ads that I might like. It's bad enough that I get swamped with ads online (thank gawd for adblock and mozilla), I don't need more in my mail.

    Anyways, 'tis my rant.
    You honestly shouldn't send/recieve messages that you wouldn't want aired on a public mail server. Heck nothing on the internet is totally secure anyway, much less email. There's always someone that can access it.

    Heh.. I know this all too well. But I don't need to open up a further can of worms by putting myself into a greater position. I still remember a time when the Internet was appaulled at the thought of business (and ads) coming online. Heck, it was scareligious (sp?).

    And while anyone might be able to access it, if I make it harder for them they are less likely to do so. If I make it easier they are more likely to do so.

    Not only do I not have it, I'm not even sure what it is. I'm assuming it's a server, like ...@gmail.com or something like that. I don't know, sbc yahoo works for me!!
    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

    Yep, email is like a postcard. Encryption is an envelope. PGP is my preferred encryption system, however I have been known to use 3-DES for casual encryption as well.

    Just PM me if you need one - I'd hate to send an invite out to someone who already got another invite sent to them and waste it..

    I still have 18. send me a message at diggerbunny AT gmail.com and I will reply with an invite. Neat and clean.

    By the way, I dont know why everyones having fits about gmail text-scanning emails for some rather benign targeted advertising. after all, ITS EXACTLY THE SAME service that scans your posts here at bikeforums for those targeted ads inbetween posts. six of one, half dozen of the other.

    I actually don't get too much Spam on hotmail anymore. I think I have just outwaited all the spammers, and they have grown tired of sending it to me.

    And no one's spam filter has ever worked effectively. I have a filter for viagra, v!agra, vi agra, and v_i_a_g_r_a and they still get email through with all sorts of variations.
