And because it ties in with the UTF8 testing I've been doing recently: RT Sexy Parker Higgins @xor

I understand why most of what goes on behind the "GFE" is not encrypted, and that in most/all cases Google's use of SSL is to protect OTHER people than Google (and their friends) from access to data.. ie: during transport. That doesn't surprise me. I want to remind people of some basic things (slightly freshened up):

I'm trying to figure out how to deliver a bunch of very confidential and important network diagrams, systems configurations and passwords to a group of IT professionals that have issues with password protect .zip's (placebo level encryption... keeps most mail scanners from opening them).

I assume everything I send via email is public, and except for a few crazies like Dan, probably public shortly after I send it even when it is encrypted. Because they'll decrypt it and put it somewhere where it gets copied/scanned/snarfed/.. They guy in the department that could do encrypted email, isn't allowed the information.
