Vonage No matter the isp or e-mail "handler"/server, whenever information is transmitted



No matter the isp or e-mail "handler"/server, whenever information is transmitted unencrypted, not just signed, it is able to be intercepted and read easily. This goes for Hotmail, MSN, Earthlink, Comcast, Sprint, Google's GMail, Lycos, etc, etc, etc.

This is the exact reason why I never send private or confidential messages via e-mail/web without being encrypted, again, not just signed and have no problem paying $25 / year to Verisign for my encryption key.

Regarding the Google ads: they are context sensitive. They scan for keywords (nouns) and match those with ads relevant to the found words...not the context of the scanned item; ditto within the e-mail interface. It's not rocket science, rather, dumb scripts that choose the ads with absolutely no human deciding whether it may be offensive in its context or not. Point blank: it's just business and all about the mighty dollar.

I recently watched a news segment on local television in which they described the heart wrenching story of a family torn apart by a house fire. After, the reporter (in the appropriate somber attitude) said simply, "We'll be back.". <fade to black> Immediately a loud, high tempo commercial spot began proclaiming the benefits of purchasing you Home, Fire and Life insurance through their company. After, a funeral home commercial then on to spots announcing how great you would feel if you moved into this new mid-rise luxury condo complex. Yup, my chin was at my chest.

It's not just Google (as the story you linked to suggested) but any and every industry which uses automation for their commercial advertisement placement that can end up looking pretty bad. Again, it's just an unintelligent script doing it's job with no regard for actual context. Perhaps that will be the next great technical advancement?

Anyhow, when compared to other web-based e-mail services (paid or not) GMail is, in my humble opinion, far superior in terms of speed, user-friendliness, etc.

Your post seems to make GMail as a sole culprit in retaining messages deleted by the user; that is an absolute farce. Two years ago when I was still with Earthlink I inadvertently deleted a few e-mail messages containing my travel itinerary. As I had deleted them from my PC I quickly logged into the web-based version to see if they were still lingering. Nada, Zilch, Nothing. I then phoned Earthlink's technical support in the offchance they could undelete the messages.

"Not a problem" said the friendly and courteous technician who then explained that the messages are really never deleted for quite some time (even months) and even then could usually be pulled from backup archives.

As a "former" in the tech industry, myself, I know rule #1 in data is: Save, Backup, Save, Backup, Save, Backup... It is the standard of operation.

Now, I am not trying to disagree with you at all. In fact, I feel you raise a valid point whether you realize it or not. Sensitive, personal and confidential information should not be transmitted via the internet unless you ensure it is properly encrypted/safe. Even then, if a person is uncomfortable with transmitting their data they should stay away from this type of transmission.

As for me, I am comfortable with GMail and to be honest hardly ever pay attention to the ads. And now that I use their POP3 access, I use my encryption key whenever I have the chance.

For those out there who like having ample space in their inbox and don't want to have to pay for AND are comfortable sending e-mails, GMail is perfect. For those who dislike the keyword-generated ads, etc then choose something else. Hey, after all it's free!
