    Only alternative i can think of is mail.com
    He may just want a different email. I know some people have moved away from gmail due some article's posted about the "invasion of privacy" that google does but the one thing you have to be careful off when reading some of these articles is that M$ has people on staff that there job is to post wrong information about the competition. My wife works for Samsung as a tier one tech rep and part of her training is over privacy policy so when people call in they can explain them and she has told me google does have the rights but they in no way shape or form actually do those things,

    What things? Google does customize ads based on keywords in emails, they keep records of google users' searches and website visits. They claim the right to track users' geographical location via their cell phones, if they've been given the cell phone numbers. They admit they do this, so what's that got to do with misinformation?

    I am a big fan of secure email, but Hushmail is no friend. The former CEO of Hushmail on twitter showed me where Hushmail used every trick in the book to help the authorities get access to the super secret key and read some drug trafficker's email. so be warned.

    I was just teasing. I think we need to look at the tools available and choose the ones that best meet our personal needs.
