i honestly don't see the problem with Gmail.   All e-mail is scanned anyway.  If you have something private you don't want scanned, hand write it and hand deliver it ;0)

as for google's desktop search, microsoft have one due out soon

Can't ever remember searching for anything on my computer, I have everything nicely in their folders, so, doubt i would ever use such a feature

This isn't about Gmail, it's about the Google Desk Top Search.

Bob, since people in this thread also mentioned gmail, I decided to reply to both gmail and google desktop which are both being discussed in this thread.

I have a tendency to save a lot of info on a separate hard drive and many times I can't remember just where some subject or file is.  I use these tools to solve this problem.  I can't get along without these!

Search Utilities

Ava Find (Shareware) First 30 days has all the Pro features enabled, after that you can still use many of it's features.  I found it well worth the cost!

ISYS Hindsite (Freeware)

I'm was thinking about trying out the Google Desktop to see how good it is.
