Who’s reading your email?

ThiefWithLaptopThere has been a major shift over the last few years away from local ISP based email towards the likes of Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.  These services give easy access to your email wherever you are, on your phone, at work and at home.

We certainly notice with our email marketing campaigns that there are lots more email addresses ending @gmail.com, etc…

And there are many companies taking advantage of Googlemail’s ability to assign their own domain name to a group of gmail accounts and effectively use googlemail as their corporate email server.

So, what’s the problem?

Well, since the NSA came clean about Prism last week, it’s now clear that the US Government and possibly the UK Government too has been snooping on email from all these main Internet Service Providers with pretty much unfettered access to our email.

I don’t know how you feel, but I’d prefer that my business email remains unread by anyone but the recipient and myself.  As soon as open access is offered, it inevitably gets abused way beyond the initial remit.  In this case the fight against global terrorism.

So, what to do?  For a business, either set up your own email server, or far better use a specialist email hosting provider based in the UK and using a UK data centre.  For an individual, find a UK based ISP and use their email – plus.net are pretty good, but others work well too.
