Re:  

I use Gmail though Thunderbird or Eudora. I have the account set up to delete messages from server once read. So are they keeping copies of all mail besides reading it?

I never log in to the actual Gmail page, and I never log in to search on Google.

I'd love it if Google linked all the correspondence about a cat's impacted anal glands.

TTBOMK Gmail ignores the client DELETE command, and retains all of your email, even the spam.

Where's Gmail keeping it? Do they have a data center like ATT is supposed to? The mail isn't on their page. I do check to make sure mail was deleted. Tells me I'm using 0B of whatever they give you.

If there is a data center like ATT, I think those that are interested have a right to know. For myself, it's six of one, half a dozen of the other, but there are some paranoid people around. I prefer being a PITA to marketing.

read the ToS. If it is deleted, it may be on a backup system somewhere, but deleted trash should be gone forever.

It was a deal google made with California when they first rolled out gmail.
