E-Mail Security

With the controversy over General Petraeus, CNN asked the question that if the Director of the CIA’s e-mail isn’t secure, what about yours?

It’s fine, don’t worry about it.

That got me to thinking. What if my e-mail isn’t secure? What if the world at large could read everything I’ve ever sent?

They’d die of boredom, if they didn’t die of embarrassment about your pre-spellcheck errors and terrible grammar.

I mean, it’s not like I’ve ever written anything that outrageous, at least that I remember.

Ha! At your age you can’t remember where you put your car keys!

I’m probably paranoid. I guess I don’t need to worry about whether my e-mail is sacrosanct or not.

Nope. Nothing to worry about here.

Don Adams as Maxwell Smart on “Get Smart”. Not someone tapping into your e-mails. No really! You’re fine! We’re fine! Everything’s fine!  How are you?
