Keeping Email Private

Think, would you want your email to be read after you are dead, without you having explicitly asked for it earlier (or in other words willed it) ?

I don't certainly think I want my email to be read by anyone else after my death, given the kind of things I get involved in ;-)

Yahoo is, so far, standing by its policy of protecting the privacy of its email subscribers. But the policy is under attack by the parents of a Marine who was recently killed in Iraq, who want to read his email.
