    Google.

    I've had to get a new e mail account as them c***s at BT want money for the old one.

    I opened a G mail acc and it won't support the old format on Google.

    I've had to up-date to Google chrome and it's fooked everything up!

    Any advice please?

    Fuck G-mail, snooping wankers openly state that users "Have no reasonable expectation of privacy", meaning in effect they can and will read all the contents of your emails should they see fit.

    Ostensibly, they say it's for targeted marketing...

    Gmail Users Have “No Reasonable Expectation” Of Privacy

    Google admits in filing that email users should not be surprised that the company processes communications

    As I have noted here before, it is worth remembering that as recently as 2009, Google CEO Eric Schmidt said, “If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.”

    Schmidt expressed more here than a personal opinion, he revealed views on privacy and transparency that underpins his company’s ideology — one that shows scant regard for Google user privacy. On Wednesday it was revealed in the form of a legal filing, uncovered by Consumer Watchdog: Gmail users have “no reasonable expectation of privacy” for information passed through Google’s email server.

    The comment from Google’s lawyers came out in a class action lawsuit in which the Internet leviathan is being challenged over Gmail’s feature for scanning emails to target ads. Plaintiffs claim that Google’s practice goes against wiretap laws, but the Google’s lawyers argued otherwise, stating:
    Just as a sender of a letter to a business colleague cannot be surprised that the recipient’s assistant opens the letter, people who use web-based email today cannot be surprised if their emails are processed by the recipient’s [email provider] in the course of delivery. Indeed, ‘a person has no legitimate expectation of privacy in information he voluntarily turns over to third parties.’”
    However, millions of Google users had not assumed that everyday their electronic communications were being systematically scanned and read. But Google’s attorneys went so far to say that this is simply “ordinary business practice.”
    John Simpson, Consumer Watchdog’s privacy project director, told the Guardian that Google’s argument is deeply flawed:
    Google’s brief uses a wrong-headed analogy; sending an email is like giving a letter to the Post Office. I expect the Post Office to deliver the letter based on the address written on the envelope. I don’t expect the mail carrier to open my letter and read it.
    Similarly, when I send an email, I expect it to be delivered to the intended recipient with a Gmail account based on the email address; why would I expect its content will be intercepted by Google and read?”
    Now, any close follower of Google’s transparency reports and general modus operandi when it comes to compliance with government demands for user data will not be surprised by this revelation. Furthermore, it is no secret that Google traces user search activity in order to provide targeted advertising. However, millions of Gmail users — unattuned to the vagaries of Google’s approach to transparency and privacy — would have assumed their emails were treated as private. Hopefully the current lawsuit will help inform more Internet denizens that if they’re seeking confidentiality and protection from government and corporate surveillance, Google is no place to turn.
    Gmail Users Have

    I await the old chestnut of "Well, if you've got nothing to hide...", but that's a pretty piss weak argument when it comes to allowing all of your personal correspondence to be read.

    Everyone can read your emails there...


    Mailinator is fundamentally quite different from other services. Other services let you "own" email addresses. Not here - at Mailinator all email addresses are owned by everyone and anyone. All email is public.

    Every one of 'em reads your mail bro - for sure. Remember - carrier pigeons and smoke signals should always be used for secure messages

    Gmail has forced a lot of changes recently....

    I don't believe you have to convert to Chrome to have a full Gmail account.
    Bollocks.

    There are ways to get around that.

    you mean like how the postman reads your mail to and the phone company listens into your phone calls for marketing purposes. and the hospital admins read your medical records for laughs. The world is full of third parties that are expected and often obliged not to stick their nose into the information they handle.

    The only reason Google gets away with this is simply because they can do it, and they can do it without the customer noticing.

    Perhaps these third parties handling the private information of Google's board could do us all a favor and post it all over wikileaks so they can learn why people expect privacy. I'm sure some of them have had a few std's their wives don't know about.

    Guys, give up on trying to stop being snooped on - the battle has been lost. Much better if everyone signs their emails with bomb, jihad, smack, cia, revolution anarchy.

    Cunts will be far to busy trying to superspy on every one of us to catch a bit of premium Lebanese Red slipping under their noses

    Within the google account system - one can revert to the current system without downloading Chrome..

    Disable these items of concern.

    Right now - I could create a new Google account without all the bollocks of forced upon Chrome.

    ....it helps also if you are running windows.
    The bastards are compatible.

    You all know, sweet fook all to my question?

    ...or, if all fails, Google [how appropriate] the problem or issue you have - there is always a way/backdoor to solving - getting around those cunts.
