Service providers can read your e-mail?

I think that this is a really bad decision. While systems/network administrators should be able to access certain types of e-mail (for troubleshooting or policy violations), allowing a service provider to read other peoples' e-mail (without their permission) so that he can gain a competetive advantage, has serious implications. This is another of those slippery slopes. Wired also has an article about it.
