    NO, because they will be seeing everything of that person's e-mail
    and that should be illegal. If they think the person is doing something against them they should call their lawyers to get legal advice before procesnding.

    Where does the line on such searches get drawn though? What if the likes of Microsoft and Google were to do automated searches for keyword phrases that might set off alarms? Would that be problematic?

    It's a slippery slope for users that aren't willing to pay for email services, and instead rely on big tech companies to provide accounts for "free".
