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?

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.
