@GrannySueSnaps I see the point you are making and those will be important facts as various cases come to bar. Given recent rulings I can say the following. I have no expectation of privacy when sending personal e-mail over an employer's network. If I am not mistaken there have already been cases addressing this.

I think you have swerved into an important point here. As technology improves/changes I think few people are really thinking about the privacy implications. In fact, as I said the prevailing attitude seems to be if you've done nothing wrong what do you care if someone accesses your data.

This is one issue where we better start paying attention to what views future appointees have about the Constitution in general and privacy specifically. It might be hard too get people excited about this though.
The amount of information people are willing to share is amazing. Most younger people are willing to share far more information on Facebook/Twitter for example than most of us would think of doing. Their definition of privacy is far different from the definition many of us have of privacy.
