Gmail Traffic Between Google Servers Now Encrypted To Thwart NSA Snooping

Quote:
Today Google announced that it has enhanced encryption for its Gmail email service, bolstering security to protect customers from prying eyes, especially those of governments.

As of today, Gmail will “always use an encrypted HTTPS connection” whenever a user checks their mail, or sends a new missive. According to Google, the expanded protection will ensure that your mail is safe from being snooped on as it travels from your machine to Google’s data centers. This means you are protected regardless of what sort of network you are logged into, either a public connection or whatever else.

Perhaps even more importantly now, messages inside of the Google datacenter network will be encrypted — so as your note moves from one Gmail server to another, it will be protected.

Won't change anything. Nsa can get whatever they want. Do you have it digitally stored? It can be accessed.

I agree. SSL was cracked and compromised long ago, and this inter-server encrypted stuff is merely a minor hassle for government spies. I'd be happier if the emails were stored in encrypted form on Google's servers. Fat lot of good encrypting the inter-server connections is when the stored emails are wide open.

Fed up with gMail & Google
Is there any good cloud based email clients. I'm fed up with gMail and Googles, "I want to know your life". Any personal suggestions ? If not I'm going with just downloading my email locally. Next will be using Google to search the Net.
