Sounds like a rhetorical question, Rich. Might there be proprietary data
involved? Etc.? I agree with your implicit non-trust. Google could change
their user agreements / terms-of-use anytime . . .. They could even be
bought by Micro$oft <ha, ha>. One can buy hosting services with oodles of
email availability for so little money that you might consider going in
that direction if you don't want to maintain an email server in-house.
