I just don't understand where the idea of privacy was dropped in this whole Internet business.
Unlike snail mail, which is wrapped, sealed and not visible to the naked eye, email is transferred in plain text and most often stored in plain text and can be easily viewed by anyone with server access.
If you want email to be secure send it encrypted instead of plain text.
Simple as that.
