Do any beta testers know what send format Gmail uses by default?
And if it is text/html; is there any Google baggage in the footer; such as a webbug?
IMHO, the capability for Google to insert a webbug into outgoing email that [under the current Windows/IE/Outlook integration] would enable them to tie 3rd party email addresses to their search history is the real privacy issue behind Gmail!
I sent myself an email, and everything is quite standard. Here's an example:
Date: Tue, 13 Apr 2004 18:19:33 -0700 From: XXXXXXXX <XXXXXXXX@gmail.com> To: XXXXXXXX Subject: An email to you Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Status: RO Content-Length: 54 Lines: 4
I am sending you an email. Hello!
No web bug. Heck, not even one of those little self-promotional signatures that get tacked on and you can't remove. No ads in the outgoing email. No ads in the incoming emails. Just clearly marked text ads on the right-hand side of the browser for some emails.
