Your points are valid for sure .. but if you are not encrypting your
email, then all of it is likely being scanned and saved anyway.  Any
router along the way can log packets and see whatever is transmitted
that is not encrypted.

Most of the world uses android phones (I think it is like 75% now) and
all the mail that goes there is available to google as well, right?

Not to say I like it .. I don't.  But people want it to work, work in a
user friendly way and convenient access from everywhere .. and from
their phone, their home pc, while traveling, etc.
