How easy is it for the likes of gmail / hotmail / yahoo etc. staff to access our emails. I have a client who is reviewing security in many aspects of his life.
If he uses a free email account such as hotmail etc. Are the hotmail staff able to view his emails if they choose to?
Also I assume without the email being encrypted, any server where the email message passed through can also obtain the content of that email right?
Is this just generally the way it is and therefore all should assume that email, unless encrypted is totally insecure?
Thanks for input
