Do you encrypt your email?

Well I hope that all the people making a fuss about Gmail privacy are; email is not the private communication we would like to think it is. Yes, it is a bit unsettling that they (gmail) scan your email but do people actually look at it? is the information being archived?(that’s a maybe not sure), do you have real information with them (full name address, ss, etc). While you must start somewhere I am inclined to think that this energy would be better spent on entities in which I trust much less like Wal-Mart or Lexmark

I say this having looked at Google’s past record, which has been (comparatively speaking) squeaky clean.
