When I used to give training in computers to grandparents, I used to try to describe how email traveled through multiple servers before it got to the destination.  I used to explain that using email is akin to writing on a post-card and handing it to your neighbor to give to the post office. You KNOW that everyone along the way can read it.  Today’s story surprises me in that I did not realize law enforcement could go into mail servers without a warrant and look through the emails, now.  In my analogy, that’s akin to the local police digging through the postal bin and reading the postcards before they get delivered.  It’s something to ponder next time you hit SEND.  New Bill Would Update Digital Privacy Law
