Due to the homeland security act your e-mail is being encouraged to be read by your ISP's

"Part of this act legalizes and actually encourages ISPs to read their customers' e-mail and turn in anyone that they deem suspicious. The company must use a "good faith" effort to determine whether there is an "immediate threat to a national security interest." This shields them from litigation in the unlikely event anyone ever finds out they got ratted out. But the ambiguous boundaries of the bill guarantee that many things will get reported to the government that have nothing to do with terrorism."
