    I found this link - http://gmail-is-too-creepy.com/ - and it brings up some interestring points. I've checked around and it seems that yahoo mail do this to, it's just not listed in their T&C.

    Can someone spread some light on this and tell me if this is normal or not?

    Thanks

    I would take anything from a site that is entirely devoted to bashing a product, service, or company with a grain of salt. Obviously, you only get one side of the story: in this case, that of users disappointed with and possibly paranoid about Gmail.

    Just use the e-mail service provided by your host. That's better than any free e-mail solution, including any offered to you by your ISP.

    Whoever wrote that website is a sad sad person that needs to get out more. I use Gmail and I know about the issues people worry about. If you don't like it, don't use it. Simple as that.

    I too use Gmail and I think it's great. It's fantastic with spam, sorts and filters my emails, and searches for key words. Who cares that they never really "delete" emails. Who cares that they keep tabs on your email habits. I don't have any incriminating habits, do YOU??? Oh, by the way don't leave your house the GOVERNMENT has spy satelites that can read your newspaper. LOL!
